ESPN Player Evaluations

USJN Gateway Challenge-May 2013: Explosively athletic floor-leader with a scorer's mentality; tough to contain off the bounce, motors in transition with court awareness; range beyond the arc with confident persona; leader in half-court game, distributor. (Olson)

USJN Gateway-May 12: The combo guard from St. Louis, Mo., can provide a team with an offensive spark from the backcourt. At 5-4, she is a bit undersized, but her speed and quickness give her game an element that helps level the field. Bell is great in transition -- she has the ability to win a foot race against opposing guards and finish plays around the rim. Her perimeter jumper continues to be a work in progress, but there were signs of improvement. Bell will have to continue to develop her all-around game and learn to run a team and act as a true point guard to help solidify her stock as a top prospect in the 2014 class. (Moore)

Nike Skills Academy Indy-April 2012: Quick, similar game to Charon Sweeney (OH-13). Likes to push the tempo. Hit a couple of right hand runners in the lane. (Clay)

Chicago Fall-Oct. 11: A talented athlete who is still learning how to play the game and use her athleticism to her advantage. Because of her size she will need to be a true point guard in a traditional college setting. Learning how to run a team and make the game easier for others will be vital down the road as she has the potential to do both, but has yet to show it on a consistent basis. (Moore)

Turkey Jamm-Nov 11: Little point guard, plays exclusively on the ball for her high-school team. Right-hand dominant. Hit a couple of 3's. Smooth jumper. (Clay)

USJN Cincy-July 10: Point guard with a good handle and mid-range jump shot. (Bodine)
