AAU Coach Evaluation: Demariyae is the total package offensively. He can score at the rim but can also knock down jump shots from all levels. He handles the ball and sees the floor well. Is offensive versatility and athleticism makes him hard to guard. – Coach Stefan Welsh, Boo Williams WAWG

Coach Frank says: Demariyae Sills is a quick and shifty basket attacking ball handler who happens to be one of the best shooters in the 757 from beyond the three point arc! He's an exciting scorer, a 5'10 strong bodied guard who invites contact and has the ability to play through it and finish inside. A 'combo' guard Demariyae has excellent footwork and a quick release and can hit the jumper on the move, spotting up or off the bounce and with excellent consistency. A lefty, his shot mechanics are consistent and smooth whether it's shooting near the basket, off the bounce or from deep on a catch and shoot. He can flat out put points on the board in a hurry and could emerge as one of the 757's top scorers this season. It's not a stretch to see him average over 20 ppg as he had a recent 4 game scoring binge of 20 points or more at the Boo Williams team camp and took good shots! He has very good ball handling skills and for a player with a scorers mentality he is a willing passer and uses his dribble to get others involved. Demariyae defends his position, transitions from offense to defense so well and gets a lot of his steals playing off ball and being in position or simply using his great quickness to intercept passes out of help defense. He's an exciting talent, athletic and bouncy and he can flat out score from all levels!
