EBA Super 64-June 11: Without being redundant with previous evaluations, this event may have served notice that Mitchell has reached a new level of confidence and maturity in her game. Appearing physically stronger and playing with an obvious patience and understanding she was essentially a woman among girls. With the ball in her hands she is constantly on the attack and creating while making well read choices. There's no hesitancy on her part to give it up both on the break and off penetration. The added strength makes her a strong finisher in traffic and a challenge for any opposing match up. On the other end of the floor she can lock up almost any perimeter opponent with size, speed and quickness. Additionally, she provided an impressive backcourt presence on the boards. (Lewis)
USJN DC-July 10: The always present individual skills found themselves some good company in the form of some impressive playmaking. She seems to be figuring out that to get her own looks she's going to have to get some for her teammates to keep opposing defenses honest. The attack and penetration are still the same but her shot selection was the sharpest it's been to date and it's not a coincidence that FBC was impressive in their performance. The defensive attack continues to impress and could be a real strength if she truly embraces the role. (Lewis)
Battle of the Boro-July 10: This 5-10 guard from Charlotte, N.C., may have one of the more relentless individual attacks that you'll find. Possessing the ballhandling skills and quickness that defenders dread, she attacks with a change of speed and direction that keeps the best of opponents constantly recovering. Her hesitation dribble will draw even the best of on ball aces out of their stance and provide her with a path to the rim. All of her moves with the ball are smooth and effective and will translate well to the next level. Mitchell appears more willing to create and improve passing angles than in the past to set up her talented teammates. Several strong drives led to her capitalizing on defensive rotations and racking up more than her share of assists. At the other end there was an intense focus defensively and occasional evidence that she may have just as much potential getting stops as she does getting shots. (Lewis)
USA U17 Trials-June 10: If facing some of the nation's best will help raise your game to the next level then this 5-10 guard has taken a step forward. The Charlotte, N.C., native has a list of physical and basketball skills that most any athlete would envy. Finding the way to apply them against the toughest competition and making the most of what they can bring to the floor still seems to be a bit of a mystery for Rice-Mitchell. The one-on-one skills are there but she tends to settle for the pull up or force something in traffic. She has no trouble getting the jumper off but still needs to refine her stroke and find the consistency that will force defenders to close out on the catch. If she'll use her ballhandling skills to create passes as well as shots she can add a dimension to her game that will make both her and her teammates better. (Lewis)
Nike Skills-May 10: Explosive perimeter player that was always making plays. She has a knack for getting to the ball and doing something with it when she gets her hands on it. She gets into the seams of the defense and has the tools to covert those opportunities into scores.
