ESPN Player Evaluations

PBR Super 64-July 2013: Smooth floor-leader handles and distributes with outstanding court awareness; confidently handles, passes with purpose; hesitation creator, manufactures and finishes plays; IQ, collapses defenses, interior passer; among the elite floor leaders in the 2014 class. (Olson)

PBR Super 64-July 11: Scored almost at will on a variety of different shots and from different ranges. Looking more for her own than she has previously but still delivering solid results. Hit some major shots in an early tournament loss with defenders practically hanging off of her. Will need to keep defenders guessing to a greater degree to force them to play her honestly on the catch. Defensively she active and aggressive but still isn't to the point of being able to tightly contest the ultra quicks she may face down the road. The court awareness is there on the weakside and she anticipates well off the ball. Her play raises expectations and makes you sometimes forget that she's only got one varsity season under her belt. (Lewis)

USAB U16 Trials-May 11: Demonstrated a command of the floor and played with unwavering confidence throughout the trials. Her individual ball skills and attacking mentality allowed her to create scoring opportunities but more so to find the post feeds the floor coaches were looking for. Her hesitation move and change of speed are very effective and draw defenders from their stance time and again. She hit the pull up a time or two but her shot selection did take a detour on a couple of occasions. She takes a pretty good cushion as an on ball defender but ironically is an aggressive and aware helpside asset. Finding lots of success as she finds her way. (Lewis)

Flava Jam-July 10: Some say that shooting is a lost art. Perhaps the skill is making a comeback in the future. When Caldwell elevates, extends and then flips her wrist, those watching get the feeling that the ball is about to ripple the net. Her release is so pure, it is in the Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis realm. What makes her a fantastic shooter is her understanding of her shot-making ability. Very few players her age have the strength to even draw iron on a step-back jumper from 18 feet. Caldwell didn't draw iron either, but it did trickle the net for one of the most impressive individual plays of the tournament. One look at her feet and it is easy to assume that her time at 5 feet 8 is running out. She is a savvy player with good ball schools and decent athleticism. Right now, as a point guard, she lacks lateral quickness to defend elites at the position. However her projected position is the wing when she grows into her feet. (Hansen)
