Player: Alley Wright
School: NC GBB
What a day it was at the Lady NC Top 80, as not only was it a great way to showcase the talent around the state but it also kicked off what we hope to bring with Lady Phenom. We want to continue the coverage from the event, as we talk about more players that grabbed our attention.
Another strong freshman that captured our eyes at the camp was 2026 Alley Wright from NC GBB. She came in and made a name for herself at the camp, as she didn’t have the attitude and game of a young freshman. When watching Wright in action, she played a tremendous motor and made her presence known on both sides. She wasn’t afraid to battle and mix it up, and display a balanced attack from multiple levels on the floor. Wright was able to not only get downhill and finish through contact, but she was able to showcase how shifty she can be, her ability to get around defenders, and how effective she can be both offensively and defensively.
We loved her mindset, as she set the tone from Game 1 and played like that throughout the event. Wright was relentless and aggressive with her game, not settling, making plays happen for her team, and playing extremely hard all throughout. She will be a name you will want to jot down more as she continues to develop.
