ESPN Player Evaluations

USJN Chicago-Oct. 10: At 5-10, this budding star has a little bit of everything offensively and an explosiveness that makes her a fantastic rebounder for the guard or wing positions. She stroked some long jumpers out to 3-point range, put the ball on the floor and broke defenders down and finished with contact. Defensively she has lightening quick hands to go with her athleticism, which should be good for a several steals per game. It was Sunday. Lloyd needs to find a way to make an impact more consistently as she will make some "wow" plays and then roam and float for several possessions before making another play. (Hansen)

Run for the Roses-July 10: On a team full of offensive superstars, Alexis Lloyd has found a niche as a defensive stopper. From the opening tap the 5-9 guard from Whitney Young in Illniois makes her presence known, whether she is harassing the ball full court or leaping over taller players for a rebounding. Opposing teams have to make adjustments because her defense and hustle are extremely disruptive to the offensive flow of the game and she is capable of locking down their best perimeter scoring threats. Even though Lloyd is a standout defensive player, she can hold her own offensively, she has nice crossover and hesitation dribble moves that, combined with her vertical leaping ability, allow her to blow by defenders. Her commitment to defense make her the type of player that for college coaches will be more than happy to add to their roster. (Bodine)

Braggin' Rights-Dec. 09: Athletic and very active guard. Seems to be everywhere on the floor and makes plays at both ends. Has some decent individual skills and can create off the dribble. Gets out in transition and runs the floor well and can handle on the break if she has to. Very physical and impressive on ball defender.
