In case you missed it, Dobson High School's 6-foot senior post Monay Mariscal is now officially off the recruiting board. After having a very good junior season last year for Dobson, and then helping her club program, Arizona Blue Star, to a big spring and summer performance on the club circuit, Mariscal has found a college home - signing with a nationally ranked division-II college program.
Recently, Mariscal took an official recruiting visit to Cal Poly Poma and decided to sign a national letter of intent with the program, and head coach Danelle Bishop and her women's basketball staff. This is an excellent get for the Broncos women's basketball program, as Mariscal is the top returning player this season for her Dobson HS girl's program.
Mariscal is the team’s top returning prospect this season, after averaging 8.4 points and 5.6 rebounds per/game last season. Mariscal was the team’s third leading scorer last season, but will look to lead the team in numerous statistical categories this season. She has developed into one of the state’s elite 2015 power forward prospects.
Dobson is off to an excellent start to the 2014-2015 high school basketball season, after starting the season with an excellent 6-0 record and winning last week's Highland Tournament - a tournament that included many of the state's elite girl's programs. Dobson blew past their competition, which included big wins over Valley Vista and Seton Catholic, before knocking off Mountain Pointe HS in the championship game in fine fashion - 70-47.
Congratulations to Monay on her recent signing from our Arizona Preps' staff, and good luck to her and the Dobson Mustangs this season - one that is already off to a tremendous start.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: Mariscal is a strong post player with excellent physical strength and a nice physical base, which allows her to get excellent post position and score effectively around the basket. She is a tough, physical rebounder and a good finisher around the basket. She also likes physical contact and draws fouls effectively inside the paint. She has solid footwork and low-post moves, but is still developing as an offensive player. Her best attributes are her ability to rebound and defend the low-post. She will need to develop in her ability to continue to make shots from the perimeter and improve her range from three-point distance. While she does not necessarily need to be as effective from longer ranges in high school, a consistent jump shot will help her a great deal in her future in college. Mariscal is also a nice prospect in track & field and so she could be a two-sport star in college, if she chooses. She also transferred from Mountain Pointe HS after playing her first two seasons of high school for the Pride.
