ESPN Player Evaluations

Flava Jam-July 11: If there is one high level guard who keeps finding ways to continue advancing her game it's this 5-9 backcourt standout. Almost every aspect of her play seems to become more refined and effective each time we see her... Click here for the full evaluation and tip sheet.

WCP Spring-May 11: "In the game of basketball, physical gifts can often be misleading. That's not true in the case of Small as her talent makes her a player to keep an on. In a talented class of perimeter players, Smalls' ability to attack the rim off the dribble is a speciality on the offensive end for the 5-9 guard. In the open floor, she looked comfortable dishing to her Essence teammates for baskets but was also more than willing to contribute to the scoring load when needed. (Clay)

Boo Williams-April 11: Handles the ball well in the open court and under pressure. Energetic defender. (Bodine)

Bayou-July 10: Small makes the game seem effortless. When she is striding down the court, it appears she isn't even breaking a sweat. The fluidity of her game just seems easy. At 6 feet, with a game bursting at the seams, this youngster from Miami is anything but "small.". She has long, quick strides with which she takes advantage at the defensive end by continually jumping passing lanes and getting the transition game started. She handles the ball well and keeps the dribble very tight to her body when being pressed by a defender. Small has good timing and gets full extension from her leap, which equates to successfully attacking the rim and getting shots off over larger defenders down low. It also equates to an ability to pull down monster boards and mix it up with the bigs. Keep watch to see how the perimeter game progresses; adding a long-distance game to the mix will boost a more-than-solid prospect even higher. (Howe)
