PURDUE WOMENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
Players stand out at Versyp's Elite Camp

Head coach Sharon Versyp's first elite players camp at Purdue should be deemed an overwhelming success, due to the simple fact the staff gained an oral commitment from South Dakota's rising junior Sam Ostarello. But it also gave the staff a close-up look at some other Indiana talent they will continue to follow into the summer and on into the 2007-08 high school season.

Ostarello shared camp MVP honors with Ben Davis high school's Dee Dee Williams, a 6'0 forward from the class of 2010. Williams averaged 6.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.7 assists as a freshman last year. Williams was an honorable mention All-Indianapolis Metro West selection. The Giants finished 18-5 with a regional lose to Center Grove.

A familiar face at the camp was that of Penn's Lily Svete. Svete, a 6'2 forward from the class of 2009, continued to impress the staff and was rumored to have been offered as scholarship by the staff.

The fourth player said to have caught the eye of the staff was Courtney Moses, a 5'6 point guard in the class of 2010 from Oak Hill (IN). As a freshman, Moses averaged 10.3 points on 95-189 (.503) shooting for the field, made 66-of-79 (.835) freethrows, and added 3.6 rebounds, 4.3 assists, and 3.27 steals for 24-2 Oak Hill, a team that finished ranked No. 3 in Class 2A. Oak Hill was one game away from facing Heritage Christian in the IHSAA State Finals this year, but fell in overtime to Jimtown, 71-62 in the Class 2A Elkhart Central Semistate. Moses scored Oak Hill's final 11 points, beginning with a 17-foot jumper that was originally called a three-pointer, but was changed to a two. Then Moses hit the driving buzzer-beater at the end of regulation to send the game into overtime. Jimtown pulled away from there. By the end of the game, six Oak Hill players would foul out, and four were gone by the end of regulation. Moses finished with teams highs of 24 points, four rebounds and three assists.

She was named first team All-Grant County, leading the county in freethrow percentage and assists, and an All-Central Indiana Conference pick. Her freethrow percentage ranked her ninth in the state among all players.

Moses' summer club team, Indiana's Finest 14U Black, is currently playing at the AAU Nationals in Salem, VA. This summer, 14U Black has won an Indiana state AAU championship, a national championship at the GBA Nationals, and takes a 26-2 record into Salem for another shot at a national championship. The team will play pool games through Tuesday, then dump into a tournament that begins on Wednesday.

Moses also runs track and cross-country.

Williams and Moses have both been added to Purdue list of targets.
