#MGBB MIX: Damiah Griffin - 2017 - G/F - 6'0 - White Station

Wait a minute! WAIT JUST ONE MINUTE!

I thought White Station's Damiah Griffin was a post player. I could have sworn she has been playing in the post since I've been watching her play in high school.

Then this past summer during the University of Memphis team camp, I saw her dropping bucket after bucket after bucket FROM THE PERIMETER.  I almost fell off the table I was sitting on.

Then I forgot all about it. UNTIL I went to watch White Station scrimmage Northpoint.


I have never in all my almost 15 years of closely watching girls basketball in Memphis seen a player move from the post to the guard position and BLOSSOM the way she has. And I say move from the post to guard position loosely because she plays both positions. White Station is a dynamic team to me. They can go big with Damiah on the perimeter at 6'0 along with a 6'1 and 6'2 post. Then the team can go small and quick with Damiah as a post player.

As you will see in the video, she is a nightmare on defense with her long arms and quickness. Then she is a nightmare for the defense with her abilities to score in a variety of ways: jump shot, off the dribble, back to the basket, cutting to the basket, with her left and right hand on the block and off stick backs.
