2012 Battle in the Boro

Gray is like a baseball closer -- she will let others on her team set the pace early and then step up her involvement late to seal the victory. Perhaps more drive-oriented, her perimeter shooting continues to improve. For college, she has made an oral commitment to North Carolina.

Metros Coach Shari Griggs on Gray:  “She is sort of a perfectionist. She will be harder on herself than I will.” - Bob Corwin

2012 Boo Williams Invitational

Here is one player who shows up every day playing hard at both ends with little emotional fanfare.  A lefty who likes to go left, Gray could stand an upgrade to her right-hand dribble but there is not much else to complain about.  Her basketball IQ is high, scoring within the team concept.  She shoots the three well and goes to the basket strongly and is solid at the foul line.  Her 25-point performance to eliminate the host Boo Williams team in the Gold Division quarterfinals was certainly near the top of any one game showing in the event.  ACC and SEC schools are all hoping to land this wing player.  - Bob Corwin
