ESPN Player Evaluations

Boo Williams-April 11: She is very good at getting to the basket with minimal dribbles. However, she needs to correct some flaws in her perimeter shot as well as improve her shot selection (Bodine)

End of the Trail-July 10: Twenty minutes after stepping onto the court, the 5-9 sophomore from La Jolla, Calif., had heads spinning and coaches scrambling to find a seat to watch her play. Soloman's energy is electric. Her movements are lightning quick. Much like the name she wears on her jersey, Soloman's lateral movements are almost unreal. Her explosiveness allows her to get her first step past the defenders hip while maintaining contact to seal her out of a recovery. Her leaping ability allowed us to witness her back tap the board on a layup. Defensively she is stifling and swarms the ball in a full-court trapping defense that suits her game perfectly. (Howe)

Nike Skills-May '10: Lean guard with exceptional athletic skills. Her vertical is eye catching and makes her a threat off penetration even among the bigs. She handles the ball well and her individual skills put her in a position to create her own looks. Her jumper is in need of some attention if she's going to force defenders to play her honest.

Nike Extravaganza-Feb. 10: At one point during La Jolla Country Day's victory over a talented and certainly more-seasoned Villa Park team, Solomon rumbled into the lane and cupped the ball as if she meant to flush it. She is just 5-8, but hers is a convincing act because she explodes off the floor like a bottle rocket. As it was, Solomon laid the ball in, then slapped the glass for good measure. If you follow the female side of basketball at all closely, then you certainly know La Jolla Country Day is the school that produced Candice Wiggins, who made Stanford a national-championship contender with her moxy and athleticism. The next great athletic guard out of Southern California just might be this freshman phenom hailing from the same school. Not only is she explosion, Solomon is an ultra-fluid athlete, a quality that often is a predictor of greatness. She is long and gets off the floor quick, making her difficult to handle around the glass or to negotiate around when she is on defense. She has a decent mid-range, pull-up shot and some ballhandling skills, and is one of those players you cannot take your eyes off. (Nelson)
