Start familiarizing yourself with the names Asia Durr and Katie Lou Samuelson. This talented duo, No. 1 and No. 2 in the just-released 2015 Full Court Fresh 50 Player Rankings, have the potential to be the next stars of the women's game and should be on your MUST SEE list if you're at all curious about what the future of the women's game is going to look like. 

Durr, a 5-9 left handed point guard, guided St. Pius X to a Georgia championship last year and has already established herself as a standout player for USA Basketball.

"Durr is just special. Mark my words -- She'll be the next great Olympic point guard," says Full Court scout Bob Corwin, who's been evaluating talent since the mid-'80s. "She's a lead guard who knows how to make her teammates better, but can also take over a game in scoring." 

This summer Durr was the captain and leading scorer for the U16 National Team that won gold at the 2013 FIBA Americas U16 Championship  She was named the tournament MVP after averaging 18.6 points and two assists per game.

Meanwhile, Samuelson, a 6-3 wing for Mater Dei High School in California, is one of the best shooters the game has seen. Her ultra-fast catch and release, coupled with her above- average height, make her very, very difficult to defend.  Samuelson played alongside Durr this summer and was the second leading scorer (16 ppg) for Team USA. She then followed that performance up by winning gold as a member of the U18 3x3 National Team.

Both players are being heavily recruited by the top programs in the country, and it's fair to say wherever they land, they are sure to vault their college of choice into the national conversation.

Other must see-players with next-level impact potential are Te'a Cooper, Jordan Hosey and Kalani Brown, but you can't count out any player in the Full Court Fresh 50 as a potential all-leaguer, or even all-American. After all, you can't measure heart and desire.
