ESPN Player Evaluations

Battle in the Boro-July 11: Continuing her strong spring and summer performance. Pushing the ball on virtually every possession. Vision and confidence allow her to read the floor and make good decisions both on the break and in halfcout scenarios. Her long range consistency and quick release necessitate quick and tight close outs from defenders. Has a tendency to pull up rather than take it all the way to the rim on occasion but the pull up isn't a bad option either. Went cold for a period and compensated with some sharp distribution of the ball. Defensively had a few moments of reaching and lunging that left her out of position against quicker guards who could convert the opportunity. (Lewis)

USA U16 Trials-May 11: No sign of an ACL tear at all. Good speed, strong with the ball, didn't shy away from traffic and showed great lift. Shooter who has the smarts and ball skills to slide over and play some point guard too. Tenacious on defense and always looking for a chance to make a play on the ball. (Hansen)

There's no evidence remaining of her ACL issues and her game is showing real advances. Her shooting ability and range makes her a threat off the ball but her play at the point was smart and effective. Her crossover and change of direction combines with some smooth athleticism to make her efficient on the break or in halfcourt sets. Her play was hardnosed and she wasn't hesitant to get on the floor for any loose balls that came her way. Had several turnovers not reading soft defenders on her entry passes to the wing. All in all, a strong performance. (Lewis)
