Scouting Report

Sakinah is an extremely versatile player who can actually play all five positions on both the offensive and defensive end of the floor. She is long and athletic. This combined with a high skill level and above average basketball IQ make her a cannot miss prospect in the 2024 class.

Like most Team PA players, Sakinah excels on the defense end of the floor. She can apply full-court pressure on the primary ball-handler on the opposing team one play and then guard a post player the next. This makes her an ideal defender in today's screen/switch systems. Sakinah also has strong instincts and has a knack for jumping the passing lanes and creating turnovers.

Being a "long-lefty," Sakinah is a match up problem on the offensive end of the floor. She is a competent ball-handler who can play the one. However, she drives the opponents fits when she draws a taller player who cannot stay in front of her drive to the basket. Lastly, Sakina has the ability to lead her team in rebounding every time out.

The Team Pennsylvania staff is extremely excited to see how high a level this top prospect can reach in the coming months !
