ESPN Player Evaluations

Nike Nationals-July 10: Has had her moments throughout the summer and did the same in Augusta. At times you see the combination of size and skills that makes her a top tier prospect and others it seems she'll need a little more time. Either way she's going to evolve and play her best basketball down the road. The physical play of some defenders frustrated her at times but she responded and seemed to adapt well. Her vision and decision making still stand out and allow her to make plays. (Lewis)

USJN DC-July 10: In the era of more size in the backcourt, this 6-2 wing has the skills to more than justify her presence on the perimeter. The Falmouth, Maine, native possesses ballhandling and passing skills that allow her to exploit smaller defensive matchups while creating opportunities for her teammates as well as herself. She sees the floor with impressive vision and makes good choices in delivering the ball in transition or halfcourt sets. While she wasn't exactly "lighting it up" with her pull-up or deeper jump shot, the form is sound and has been reliable in the past. Speed is not a strength but she has surprisingly quick feet defensively and utilizes a long wingspan to corral smaller and quicker match ups. Despite a slender build she wasn't hesitant to get on the glass and pull down multiple rebounds at both ends of the floor. Time, Mother Nature and the weight room could be her ticket to the top tier at the next level.

Nike Skills, New Jersey - May 2010: Very deceptive because she's very skinny and somewhat unorthodox. But woe be the defense that underestimates Coulombe. She's very smooth off the bounce and as good a passer from the wing as we've seen. We've heard of "point-forwards" in the NBA and sometimes in college and, although the term has been applied to girls, Coulombe may be the closest to actually fulfilling the role. She definitely can direct a team from the "three" because she has the handles, passing ability, verbal skills and understanding of where she and her teammates need to be. She also can shoot mid-range jumpers with either hand. Talk about surprise attack! Her lack of girth can be problematic and will need to be addressed before the next level. Her low level of arm and should strength accounts for her keeping her arms too low on defense, on receptions and on "asks" (target for passes). Additional strength undoubtedly will add even more dimensions to an already multi-dimensional player.
