ESPN Player Evaluations

Boo Williams-April 12: The way this 5-11 keeps her cool as she lights up the scoreboard is remarkable. Some may misread her demeanor as lacking intensity, but if you really watch her play, you'll quickly figure it out. She can simply create offense, even if the defender is dialed in to stop her. Wright showed she can knock down the catch-and-shoot 3, but that just sets up what she does best, score off the dribble. She can get to the rim, score off the one-dribble pull-up, or create with a change of direction on the move. She also has shown a knack for scoring in big moments. If she brings consistency to the defensive end, she could become one of the better perimeter defenders in the class as well. But if you need a bucket, you can't go wrong with Wright. (Hansen)

Flava Jam-July 11: There are not many defenders who would look forward to matching up with this 5-11 guard. Wright brings a combination of size, athleticism, skills and now... Click here for the full evaluation and tip sheet.

Boo Williams-April 11: All the physical skills we've noted in the past continue to be prevalent but what is most notable in her development is her leadership and confidence. She is leading her Mavericks team and it's a great thing to see from her. She's not waiting to pick her spots on offense anymore. She is being assertive throughout games. (Hansen)

NAIC South Carolina-Oct. 10: Wright is one of those players who just might have the whole package when all is said and done. The 5-10 guard is lean, smooth and athletic and even appears to have the potential to grow a little more. She's a versatile scorer with the ability to be effective off the drive or from the perimeter. Her first step is quick and lengthy and leaves a lot of defenders in their tracks. She can navigate traffic well on the drive or call on both a floater and the pull up. The impressive speed serves her well in transition as she gets out in the lanes and often gets the ball kicked ahead to her creating great individual opportunities. There are times that she's stagnant without the ball in the halfcourt and seems like she's waiting rather than attacking off the cut. On the defensive end her lateral speed is impressive and puts her in the position to contain almost any ballhandler. Off the ball she's active and sees the floor well while exhibiting great anticipation in helpside rotations and on reversal passes. (Lewis)

Texas UIL-March 10: Liberty-Eylau guard doesn't look like a freshman, and her game has very few freshman-like issues. If anything she waits too long to make her mark on the game. She's 6-0 and has the tools to play all three perimeter positions. With the ball in her hands she can create offense at almost any moment. Her quickness and length combines for a terrific first step and she has the ability to pull up at any point while the defender is retreating. She hit long range shots, got to the rim, played aggressive defense, all in all she is a star in the making. (Hansen)
