Tracey Parsons has a quick shooting release with range beyond 2o feet. Her balance is superb and can shoot on the move, coming off screens, after a jab step, or using a step back. A lefty, Parsons is crafty when penetrating to the basket. A physical player she can also play with her back to the basket and displays a nice touch on a turnaround jumpshot.
Parsons excels in the open court, leading fast breaks by weaving through traffic with a strong dribble. Going coast to coast, Parsons can maintain body control to finish with a Eurostep layup, floater, or pull up jump shot. Parsons is also a tenacious rebounder on both ends of the floor as well as a willing defender. She has a nose for the ball and seizes opportunities to secure loose balls.

Nadine Fadelle is a crafty combo guard, with an explosive first step and excellent ball handling ability that allows her to get to the basket with ease. Fadelle is very talented in orchestrating the offense, she used her superior quickness to generate scoring opportunities for herself as well as for her teammates. Her array of finishing moves around the basket were impressive and constantly left her defenders puzzled. Defensively, Fadelle shines as an extremely hard working and scrappy on-ball defender who has knack for stripping ball handlers and converting turnovers into easy transition baskets. Fadelle possesses great instincts defending off the ball; she plays the passing lanes well, consistently makes correct rotations, and doubles ball handlers at the right times which often resulted in turnovers.
