Update on Binford’s Aussie recruits

kate emily2

I have been talking with some folks to get more information on the two basketball recruits that Montana State’s Tricia Binford has received commits from. In the picture to the left Emily Allen is in the front row center (#8). Kate Webb is just behind her over Emily’s right shoulder (your left). The picture I believe was taken 12-18 months ago when they both played for the Seahawk basketball team/club.

One of my sources for information was TW at Showtime basketball. Showtime, as I understand it, is an organization that facilitates basketball tours for Australian teams in the US and US teams in the Australia, They are also very involved with Australian basketball scene. My other source is a guy who goes by Ben (I am just going to assume this is a guy) kind of like me, who follows Australian club basketball.

Emily Allen

TW from Showtime had the following evaluation:

Emily is 6′ wing player. She has great speed and ball handling skills and finishes well at the basket. Her shot does need to develop a little, but she should be an immediate impact player for the Bobcats.

To this Ben added that while he agrees with most of what that he feels Emily may need to add a little muscle on her frame. Once she does that and develops her shot she has a huge potential.

Kate WebbGROUP2

Given the fact that Bobcats will have only on returning point guard next year, I asked TW if he thought Webb would be capable of contributing next year and this was his response:

Webb will contribute next year no problems. She played Idaho last November and had 14 points on them as a 16 year old. She will be 2 years old, so I can’t see too much of a problem for her to contribute at that level then.

Ben also thought that Webb should be able to run the point next year. He went on to say that he thinks Webb can be a little streaky as a scorer capable of big scoring outputs at times, but is a very poised player who plays under controlled and plays much older than her age.

As with all Montana State and Montana commits I will try to update.

It should be interesting to see if these signings will be unique to this year’s recruiting class or whether Binford and her staff can develop a pipeline.

If any of you Australian basketball fans (and I know you are their) care to help me out it would be appreciated.
