For the second straight year, UW WBB Head Coach Tina Langley has landed the ESPN #14 ranked recruiting class (for 2023)– with a huge assist from Recruiting Coordinator/Assistant Coach Katie Faulkner, as well as, Assistant Coach Latara King.
What sets Briggs apart is her creative one-on-one ability, as well as her smooth shooting stroke off-the-dribble to the three-point arc and beyond.
Chloe Briggs is just hard to guard with the ball in her hands, as she is quick with with a shifty change-of-pace, change-of-direction dribble to setup a drive into the lane.
Briggs displays exceptional basketball IQ at all times; and coupled with her on-ball creativity and shot-making ability, it makes her a very tough matchup.
As a defender, Briggs demonstrates good anticipation with quick hands and feet.
Flying under the radar as a 6’6″ multi-talented big should be impossible. Yet somehow Olivia Anderson, from Ellensburg HS (Ellensburg, WA), did that just and was inexplicably left off ESPN’s final Top 100 rankings for 2023.
We strongly believe Olivia Anderson is a Top 100 4-star player with 5-star talent and UW will reap huge benefits from her signing.
Anderson is still growing physically and skill-wise, yet is already a versatile and athletic big — with seemingly unlimited potential.
Olivia Anderson could prove to be the dominant player of this class if she continues to develop and display the versatility to play inside offensively and defensively; as well as, consistently bring opposing bigs outside by hitting the mid-range and occasional three-pointer.
Even more promising, Anderson’s development trajectory will dramatically increase with the opportunity to compete against current Husky 6’4″ Dalayah Daniels in practice sessions and learn from her directly.
Brighter Future Ahead?
Overall, the 2023 recruits all possess high potential to have a huge positive impact on the Washington Women’s Basketball program, both individually and collectively.
However, their high potential comes with the high expectations of an improved program with tangible achievements.
