ESPN Player Evaluations

Turkey Jamm-Nov 11: Strong, always active. Shooting the midrange really well. Solid wing when she hits those shots. Brings so much to the table defensively. Can defend anyone - not afraid to do whatever it takes. Gritty kid in that way. Great work ethic, vocal! (Clay)

Bayou-July 11: Continues to prove she's one of the best catch-and-shoot guards in the class. While not the most explosive athlete, she has the physical strength and more importantly the smarts to exploit mismatches and seize scoring opportunities. (Hansen)

EBA Super 64-June 11: Athletic with a solid frame. Has advanced her ballhandling skills and is always on the attack on the break or in the halfcourt. She can get to the rim and slash through traffic or she can pull up effectively from 10 feet and in. She's looking for her own opportunities more often, almost too often at times. When she does give it up she's more than capable of delivering some sharp passes. On the defensive end she displayed lateral footspeed that will allow her to match up with almost any perimeter opponent. Still just scratching the surface. (Lewis)

Spring Showdown-April 11: This second viewing of Gibbs was telling. It was good to see her perform outside of the confines of high-school ball. The 5-foot-9 wing played a solid all-around game... Click here for the full evaluation and tip sheet.

Starr's Mill/Kay Yow GNO-Jan. 11: College body, good shooting touch on mid-range and 3pt, good handles has the ability to post up smaller guards, attacks with either hand and can finish in the paint, solid defender and rebounder, very athletic with good hops. (Beverly)

All SE Invitational-Oct. 10: This 5-10 wing still has a few rough edges to her game but on the whole she makes you take a look at what she's doing out there. With a solid build and explosive athleticism, she poses major matchup issues for opponents. Her first step is quick and extended and gets by even the quickest of defenders. At the same time she's aggressive and strong in the paint and almost needs to be checked by a small forward. Off the dribble she creates effectively with an impressive crossover and isn't hesitant to give it up with good reads. Her ability to utilize a step back is something players several years older should be jealous of. Defensively she'll get in a stance and dig in and anticipates well on the weakside of the floor. She goes to the boards on both ends with strong results. Recruiters should look forward to her polishing her game; opponents should not. (Lewis)
