ESPN Player Evaluations

Summer Showcase-July 09: Cannon has great break-down ability with the ball. She will pull up from deep, uses her length at times and has good athleticism. She has a lot of shake in her handle but goes on spells where she doesn't do anything with it. She needs to find ways to impact the game even when she's not scoring the ball. Consistency is her biggest challenge because the physical tools are there.

Summer 08: Full Package Lady Lightning Elite Platinum's 5-8 Janelle Cannon isn't the first player you notice on their roster. That fact may need to change if you followed their run into the semi finals in Memphis. This smooth athlete is a quiet killer who you really don't notice until after the fact. A talented and smart passer, she feeds the many weapons again and again on the Full Package team and still finds a few opportunities of her own as well. Impressive as that end of the floor may be, it's her defense that really stood out. Quick, aggressive and anticipating, she was one of the better stoppers seen so far this summer.


A JUCO All-American at Southwestern Illinois College, Cannon averaged 18.6 points, 6.5 assists, 5.7 rebounds and 4.5 steals per game as a freshman at SW Illinois.
