ESPN Player Evaluations

Nike TOC-Dec. 11: College ready body, good handles, really nice face up game smooth turnaround jump shot, nice midrange jumper, ability to shot the 3-ball, strong rebounder at both ends, good low post defender shot blocker, runs floor, finishes well in the paint, good hands, plays with a lot of emotion nice upside. (Beverly)

Nike TOC-Dec. 10: In an era of versatile players this 6-1 forward may be on her way to being the epitome of what college recruiters are looking for. Having already given a verbal commitment to Julie Rousseau and Pepperdine University, Brockway is displaying a multifaceted game that should have other recruiters scratching their head about the one that got away. Her ability to put the ball on the floor and create her own looks isn't flashy, just simple and efficient. She can get all the way to the rim but has a real affinity for the pull up jumper which leaves defensive match ups in their stance and watching. The Rolling Hills, Calif., resident is more than willing to post up both on the block as well as in the mid post area and shows some strong face up moves on the catch. A real asset is her agility and well thought movement which keeps defenders on their toes and occupied even when Brockway doesn't have the ball. She gets out and runs the floor in transition and even as the rebounder is a legitimate threat for the trail jumper on the break. Physical play will have to advance down the road but the size and build are there already. (Lewis)

WCP Spring Invitational-May '10: The Pepperdine commit is exactly what the modern game is for a wing-forward. She has the fluid agility to take traditional power forwards out to the perimeter and the size at a legit 6-1 with a solid frame to punish wing defenders from the high post or low blocks. She hit a big game-winner on Sunday to push her Balboa Hills Elite team to victory. With a solid set of fundamentals and evidence of good basketball knowledge, the Waves may have a steal in the 2012 class. (Hansen)
