USJN Midwest-July 10: At 6-3 Taylor Manuel is rare combination of power and skill. She has a body built for the rigors of playing the low post and the athleticism to play away from the basket. What stands out about the St. Louis native is her ability to handle the ball. Whereas most post players look to outlet the ball, Manual has no problem pulling down a rebound and putting the ball on the floor like a point guard. Her pick-and-roll set ups are almost impossible to defend because she sets tough picks and times her roll to the basket perfectly. Once Manuel has her defender pinned in the low post she is either going to score, make a perfectly timed pass or get fouled even against double teams. It is always fun to watch a post player with great skill and a high basketball IQ -- except if you are the opposing coach. (Bodine)
