Angelina Giordano plays dual roles as a reliable, focused shooting guard and point guard. Tenacious disposition and demonstrates leadership on the court calling plays. Can handle pressure as a point guard and looks for open teammates, but she’s also confident to drive through traffic to the basket. A fearless competitor with excellent ball handling skills and use of her left hand. Great speed and awesome defensively, especially pressing guards down the court, forcing turnovers. Skillfully takes oncoming charges with strong defensive position. Strong when rebounding and boxing out. Consistent perimeter shooter from the 3-point line and beyond. High court IQ, unselfish, often finding an open player under the basket. Drives aggressively with her off hand and when off-balance. Demonstrates athleticism chasing after loose balls. Potential D1 point guard, D2 or NAIA.

In 20 years of coaching high school basketball, Angelina was one of the toughest and smartest kids I coached. She can rebound with bigger defenders. Her physicality allowed her to defend girls 3-4 inches taller than her. Her IQ is superior over many of her opponents. Angelina can shoot the 3-point shot, which allows her to get to the basket easily. Coaches dream to have a kid who fights for you the way she does.
