ESPN Player Evaluations

Nike Skills Academy Indy-April 2012: Was solid here. Does a little of everything well. Really likes to set the table. Good passer, not great. Range on her jumper is an area to improve. (Clay)

USA U16 Trials-May 11: Good athlete who uses her upper body well in traffic to protect the ball and finish. She loves to dip under the defender's arms and lean in to gain an advantage. She showed the ability to finish off balance as well, which is important for a scoring point guard standing 5 feet 6. She has a nice hesitation move that utilizes a hands-high shot-fake and when the defender straightens up she has the burst to go right by. (Hansen)

Peterson demonstrated the she has no trouble getting past defenders of almost any caliber. Problem for her was that the lid was on and the shots weren%u2019t dropping as they normally do for her. To her credit she didn't back down and went to work distributing the ball off the same attack. Took some hard shots, including an elbow to face, but still came back for more. Looked to push the ball from makes, misses and turnovers and made good decisions in the process. Active hands make her a harassing on ball defender with ultra quick feet. (Lewis)

Classic in the Country-Jan. 11: Peterson is another talented young point guard in the Buckeye State. With an explosive first step and an attacking mentality, the 5-foot-6 point guard is causing lots of sleepless nights for opponents and playing a big role in Northland's current undefeated status. Her ballhandling helps her create her own looks and sets up a lot of the passes she's able to thread through defenders. She's more than adept with her crossover and off-the-hesitation move; she leaves defenders standing. She's looking to create transition opportunities by pushing the ball off made shots as well as misses and turnovers. She has decent form but some forward motion on her jumper might challenge consistency at some point. Her response to a missed shot or turnover needs to be more focused, but she's got all the tools to be effective on the defensive end of the floor. (Lewis)

Nike Nationals-July 10: Small point guard with decent athleticism. Handles the ball and makes sound decisions. Impressive on ball defender. (Lewis)

Nike Nationals-July 10: She is a very savoy ball handler with a good feel for the game. Shows toughness and leadership on the court. (Bodine)
