My daughter plays defense, she enjoys the back, and is good at it. Let me tell you how annoying it is when the coach needs to throw a girl back on D that isn’t D, therefor she doesn’t know the plays or the slides. She popping 8 meter fouls all over the place and losing her girl. Defense doesn’t get enough credit. Blah
The 2021 class of defenders is one of the best in a long time. Look at the girls from Baltimore, LI, NJ and PA and where they have committed to. The Baltimore UA team had 3 defenders that played on the UA team together for the last 3 years. They just don't give up a lot of easy shots, are all very active and athletic in the clearing game and communicate very well. Makes a huge difference.
