ESPN Player Evaluations

EOT-July 11: Coming into the summer as the No. 60 prospect in the ESPNU HoopGurlz 100, Swan wasted little time reminding people why she is so highly touted... Read the full tip sheet and evaluation here.

Nike Skills-May '10: Versatile and active forward. She has the size and athleticism to be a problem for both bigger and smaller defenders. Her speed lets her get out and run the floor in transition while her strength makes her an effective post up threat. She has a good stroke and the range to take full advantage of it. On the catch she's strong with the ball and can take it to the rim or give it up against defensive rotations. Technically sound and physically talented, she's one to watch in the 2012 class. In a year she has improved as much as any of the elite level players in her class.

AZ Elite Spring Classic-April 09: Has good mobility and length. She blocked a few shots in the paint. She finds open teammates out of the post when doubled and found some slashing cutters as well. She made some iffy passes trying to do too much. She got out in transition a little bit showing decent athleticism. She talks on the defensive end but doesn't always see the weak side of the floor.

From tip-off of the very first game, Jamee Swan looked poised and eager to take home the trophy. Although Swan may have been disappointed by losing in the championship game, Jamee Swan herself did not disappoint. The home-town favorite looked fresh and ready for battle. She played strong and with passion throughout the tournament. She utilized her 6-3 solid athletic frame to gain good post position and force defenders off the block, which allowed her to go to work and dominate the paint. Swan is very effective when using a variety of post move from the low block, all of which were attacking the rim by nature and never fading away. When faced in the championship game against a much larger inside defender, Swan simply drew her defense away from the basket by stepping outside and knocking down the open three. This is a nice element to her game, forcing bigs to step out and contest, unclogging the middle for teammates. In addition to physical block play, Swan was also effective on the bounce from 15 feet. When bouncing it at her defender she uses great body control to finish with the bump and get to the free-throw line. Additionally, uses her upper body strength well, keeping the ball high on rebounds and initiating sharp, strong outlet passes to get her team in transition qucikly. (Howe)
