Boo Williams-April 09: Mississippi-commit Valencia McFarland is a solid point guard, with all the necessary tools to play the position at the next level. She's a pesky defender with great lateral movement who makes it difficult for opposing point guards to get comfortable running their offenses. She is great in transition because she doesn't hesitate to get the ball up the court to start the fast break. McFarland understands how to run a team, keeping her teammates involved while looking to create her own scoring opportunities. The energy that she brings to the court is infectious and it is obvious that her teammates benefit from it. She is also fearless going to the basket; even at 5-6 she doesn't shy away from contact.

Fall 08: Valencia McFarland from Edward, Miss., ranked No. 23 in the ESPN HoopGurlz Super Sixty, didn't play every game Sunday, but when she did, good things happened. As always her quickness allowed her to dictate the pace of the game and create scoring opportunities for her and her teammates. The 5-6 point guard didn't shoot from the perimeter as she did in July, more so due to her penetration, but the threat still is there. Defensively she has the ability to take chances and still recover and making her a threat at both ends of the floor.
