ESPN Player Evaluations

Deep South Classic-April 11: Played well but not up to her usual standards. Still one of the more methodical and fundamental ballhandlers and passers in the class. Sees the floor and anticipates while making effective decisions. Can create her own looks as well as set up her teammates not only with quality passes but sharp timing as well. Footspeed defensively was exposed a bit but she reads her gaps well and limits opponent's penetration. (Lewis)

Braggin Rights-Dec. 10: Not many players have the natural instincts that this 5-11 guard has with the ball in her hands. Reading the floor for both her own looks as well as passing opportunities, Austria makes good decisions and delivers on both the shot and the pass. Her size and skills allow her to improve difficult angles as well as attack the rim on the break or in halfcourt sets. She is a capable shooter who has the range that forces defenders to extend themselves deeper than they're comfortable with. There%u2019s a smooth and calculated appearance to her game that can almost allow her to operate under the radar until you realize she's had an impact on almost every play. Her biggest asset may well be that rare quality that allows her to make the players around her better. There aren't many programs that this standout couldn't add to at the next level. (Lewis)

Braggin Rights-Dec. 09: Young combo guard with lots of possibilities. She has good ballhandling skills and pushes the ball at every opportunity. Her vision and passing skills are the kind of things that keep teammates and coaches happy. As a freshman she has good size already on the perimeter. She didn't have to take too many perimeter shots but her form at the line looked sound.
