ESPN Player Evaluations

Summer 08: She joined her Northwest Blazers club team for one last tournament before moving on to practice with the USA Basketball U18 team and she looked every bit the player that should be representing this country in international competition. She is arguably the best finisher of all the bigs in the class and her mid-range scoring is paramount when teams send as many double teams as she sees on the boxes. Her versatility is what makes her a great offensive player and she must now focus on catching her defense up.

Summer 07: Impressive for a player so young, she does not overcommit to anything, showing strong restraint and instincts. She moves well, shows a little handle, works the glass hard and can step out with reliable three-point range. In the post, she effectively uses head-and-shoulder fakes and has a jump hook, turnaround jumper and step-through move. Could play wing on the next level with improved ballhandling and trigger off the dribble.
