Belton combines size, a strong body and a high level of post skill. In Hampton, she ran the court well and was a dominating force in the paint. She showed the ability to step outside the key and hit mid-range shots. For her size, her ball handling is above average. Maybe she should not miss a relatively easy shot here or there but we could say that about a lot of players. Regardless, she is clearly on track for high school All-American honors next spring as pointed to by her No. 14 ranking in the 2014 Full Court Fresh 50. - Bob Corwin
Regarded by many as a national top 20 player, Belton didn’t do anything to convince us otherwise. Her presence is felt from the time she walks in the gym. At 6’3’ and the ability to do just about anything on the floor, she’ll have her pick of BSC programs. She rebounds well out of her area. She’s a very good outlet passer. Belton had numerous offensive moves against both a single and double teams. She passed well out of the double teams. Lynee’ showed a quick first step on several baseline maneuvers. Her passing skills afford her opportunity to play at the high post. We like to see her develop a consistent 15-17 foot jump shot, but time again is on her side. - Kelvin Powell
