ESPN Player Evaluations

Summer 08: It isn't often that highly ranked players surprise folks with new skills but that's exactly what China Crosby did. The 5-6 point guard representing the Bronx, N.Y., showed a deadly accuracy from three-point range. The super-shifty star for the Manhattan Center added this shot which perfectly complements her ability to break defenders down off the dribble. With a little added strength she will be a nightmare to defend in college as she is an impeccable passer in traffic. Being a bigger presence defensively should come with added strength but her quickness alone should allow her to make an impact on both ends of the floor.

Memorial Weekend May 08:Crosby played big all weekend at the Midwest Showdown 2008 and took big shot after big shot down the stretch of a first round tournament victory over the Dayton Lady Hoopstars. Even at 5-foot-6, she gets into the lane and creates scoring chances for herself and her teammates. China also showed the ability to knock to the three as well. Think a smaller Italee Lucas with lots of shiftiness in her game and tight handle.
