ESPN Player Evaluations

EOT-July 11: Long frame, stays active on defense. At 5-10 she can be an athletic forward with the ability to defend the wing. Steady improvement. (Hansen)

Nike Skills-May '10: Jumper has continued to improve.

Nike Extravaganza-Feb. 10: There are two big reasons why you likely will see La Jolla Country Day emerge next year among the high-school powers even though it is missing a major presence in the middle -- the Hood twins. They both may be only 5-10, but they have oodles of athleticism and Maya has the thickness and strength to neutralize players several inches taller. Malina is rangier and has more of a wing-guard game with better handles and a little more range on her shot. Maya gets a lot of her offense by mining the passing lanes on defense for breakaway layups, though she otherwise has a tendency you don't often see -- jogging back on offense -- and has the gait of someone with painful knees. The two often feed off each other's energy and get into athletic feeding frenzies that give the Torreys a dimension that's difficult to prepare for.

TOC Dec. 08: Showed 3-point range though her shooting form is a little loose.
