Summer 08: Dara Taylor stands just 5-6 but she packs a wicked punch. The point guard from Wilmington, Del., seemed uncrackable against DFW's pressure in pool play. She stayed as cool as the other side of the pillow even when doubled and what was great to see was the balance she maintained between scoring herself and making the right pass. You usually don't expect a shifty breakdown player on a team that is so well known for running their sets but Taylor has plenty of funk in her game to make plays late in the shot clock or whenever the game's momentum requires it. She does need to get stronger to take the physical punishment of the college game but her toughness makes up for it at this level.

Spring 08:Taylor is a very good player, but at a slight 5-9, she's going to have to get used to the contact at the next level. She can do everything on the court, and has an excellent feel for the game -- and also showed no fear of going inside.
