Syracuse, NY — Section III is loaded with talented girls basketball players who will give coaches sleepless nights.

At syracuse.com’s winter high school sports media day presented by Rainbow Lettering, we asked Section III girls basketball coaches who is the best opposing player they will face this year. Here’s what they said.

“She’s a really tough player. She goes hard to the basket. She’s hard to guard.” —Kevin Brazell, Central Square

“Her energy on offense. Seeing her play de ella this summer, especially, she’s developed more in her repertoire de ella with the basketball and getting her teammates the ball. So I’m more excited to see how we can eliminate that on defense as well as compete on offense.” —Love Nicholason, Syracuse Academy of Science

“The girl from Central Square, she’s good. Three-point shooter. They call her Curly. Yeah, so she’s one of the tough players.” —Bob Harrington, East Syracuse Minoa

“She phenomenal. I’ve just watched film on her from last year and she is aggressive as she aggressive comes. The whole Central Square team goes after you and they’re tough.” —Craig Trude, Fulton

“She’s a younger player, I think she is a junior this year, but she’s been great on varsity the last few years. Just strong, physical drives. “She can do a little bit of everything.” —John Snyder, Utica Notre Dame

“I think she’s a really good player and I hope that we can match up with her. “I like the challenge of that.” —Kathy Morse, Baldwinsville

“Kat, just with the work she puts in, she’s a great shooter, she has a great mid-post game and a great head on her shoulders. She’s been one of the best players in the area for a while and I think right now she has a chance to wear that crown as the best of Section III. She’ll give us the most problems, I think, individually this season.” —Ben Kochan, Henninger

“I’d say, and I think we’d all agree, Kat McRobbie-Taru from C-NS. “She (She’s) real tough.” —Mike Wheeler, Liverpool

“I would have to say that the Cortland Tigers have a group of girls that get after it, but they have a senior guard, Kendall Mack, and she will be a tough player for us to contain this year.” —Camille Murphy, Syracuse West

“She is a really good player. She plays a lot of basketball. She plays AAU with a team out of Cortland and she can shoot and drive. Really nice player. So she’s the one that we really have to make sure we keep an eye on.” —Jeff Russell, Tully

“I think that her down-low game coming back into this year is really going to be a question mark for everybody not having film on her from the year prior.” —Mariah Lamas, West Genesee

“If she’s healed from her ACL injury, she’s a game-changer.” —Mike Niles, Cooperstown

“She’s a great player. We faced them twice last year. Ella she’s going to have a great season. They’re going to have a great season as a team, too. “They’re all back, just about.” —Mike Cariseo, Christian Brothers Academy

“She has been a stellar athlete for years and I think that she is just going to keep improving year after year.” — Cherly Morrow, Lowville

“(She’s) probably the best one we are going to see” — CJ Kudla, Port Byron

“Emeline is a great shooter, she is quick on the drive and handles the ball well.” —Natalie Scott, Copenhagen

“She is a really good shooter. Ella she’s quick defensively and she knows how to pressure the ball. Ella she’s always a challenge for our girls. “I’m looking forward to seeing how my girls do against her.” —Karly Sherman, Lyme

“Emeline is the total package. She can shoot, she can dribble and she can defend. She’s a very good player.” —Sean Haley, Sackets Harbor

“Just her pure athleticism… it’s just a little intimidating, but at the same time, if we can get into her head in the beginning, that’s kind of her weak point is just being so hard on herself, and I think it’ “She will make up for her beating us in the open floor.” —Carm Petrera, Bishop Ludden

“She is a tremendous athlete and basketball player who is very disruptive on the defensive end of the floor.” —Rob Siechen, Cicero-North Syracuse

“She’s always been a difficult kid for us to handle. So quick, and her ability to shoot the ball. “I think with her being in our class, she’ll be the kid that we’ll probably be the most concerned about this year.” —John Cifonelli, Bishop Grimes

“Cece Powell is arguably the best player in the league. “We’re all kind of chasing (Marcellus) right now.” —Erich Nieman, Cazenovia

“She’s just hard to stop, super athletic, gets up and down the court really fast. Deep 3s, first step, super fast, quick off the dribble. Just a tough player to stop, in general,” — Janice Meyer, Cortland

“Very confident athlete. She plays three or four sports for Marcellus. But great player. Looking forward to playing against her.” —Troy Washington, Phoenix

“She is an all-around athlete and can score from anywhere. “She will be a challenge to contain.” —Cheryl Polinsky, LaFayette

“I coached her last year and have known her for a long time now, so it’d be fun to go against her. “I’m looking forward to going against her.” —Tyler Schermer, Whitesboro

“She is just relentless. Ella she is very fast and she is a very good shooter. She can finish in and around the rim. She’s just very smart. She knows when to move the ball and when to attack the rim, and she can get her shot up basically whenever she wants. If she she’s open, she’s going to do damage, for sure.” —Zack Steiner, LaFargeville

“She just has everything. She she can shoot, she can rebound and she can dribble. “I would say she’d be the best player we’re going to face this year.” —Tom McCarthy, Camden

“She is one of the most versatile players in Section III.” — Janelle Ferris, General Brown

“I’ve watched her play a few times. She can shoot the ball pretty well. She she’s got the length, she’s tall and she’s aggressive. “She’s probably one of the best players in our section.” —Anthony Bielak, Fayetteville-Manlius
