ESPN Player Evaluations

USAB U16 Trials-May 11: Tiny but strong and physically cut point guard. Has an attacking mentality and creates both shots and passing opportunities. Decision making process is still evolving but has some moments. Competitive at both ends of the floor and not afraid to belly up to a ballhandler defensively. All the physical tools are there with the exception on inches. Important summer in front of her. (Lewis)

JFK Classic-Jan. 11: Has a tendency to rely too much on here one-on-one skills. Adding a constistent outside shoot will only enhance her game. (Bodine)

Nike Nationals-July 10: If the 5-5 Lewis believed that size matters in basketball then she may never have picked up a ball and that would have been a shame, because she is one of the most exciting young prospects in the game today. From the moment she steps on the court you can't help but notice her feisty competitiveness. Johnson has all the flair and flavor of a New York City point guard she has unbelievable ballhandling skills including a crossover that can shake even the best defender. She is a vocal leader on the court and has a natural feel for the game and despite her ability to play ultra-fast she understands pace and tempo and how to run a halfcourt offense. What you will love about Lewis is that she is absolutely fearless when it comes to attacking the basket, and she is going to score no matter the size of the defenders in front of her. If she doesn't get it on the first try she will continue to get rebounds and put backs until she gets fouled or scores. On defense she uses her size to her advantage because she can get right in her opponent's ballhandling space and she has the ability to turn opposing point guards and cut off their passing angles. College coaches need only to measure the size of Lewis' heart if they are looking to add a special player to their program. (Bodine)

Small but ultra speedy point guard. Pushes the ball in transition and can shoot the pull up as well as the perimeter. (Lewis)
