ESPN Player Evaluations

Nike Nationals-July 10: Needs to find the consistency that will let her best not come and go quite so often. When she's active, slashing and attacking she's a handful for any defender. Her size and mobility are a great combination and the skills are there to exploit quicker and smaller or bigger and slower match ups. Defensively she's got a good wingspan and lateral speed but might need to add some physical bulk to mix it up a bit. (Lewis)

USJN DC-July 10: Still demonstrating all the skills and potential but didn't play as well as she did last time we saw her on Memorial Day. Has good size and skills on the wing. Can run the floor and slashes effectively once in the halfcourt. Thin build makes some defensive match ups a challenge. Perimeter shot? (Lewis)

Midwest Showdown-May 10: James Madison may like their commitment from this 6-2 Fairfax Stars wing now, but they're going to love her even more later. Fitting the ever growing trend of bigger skilled perimeter players, Gwathmey has the capability to create and force defensive opponents to make decisions. Her ability to slash starts with an extended and quick first step and ends with her slithering through traffic and getting a good look or going to the line. The individual skills she has makes her a challenging matchup along with her height and length. She's constantly in motion and has an impressive fluidity to her movement. While she didn't take many from the perimeter, her stroke looked good at the line and she can elevate on her pull up. Her anticipation on defense led to several tips and she has the lateral speed to corral smaller, quicker opponents. She'll have to add some strength on the next level but the folks at JMU will gladly take care of that. (Lewis)
