ESPN Player Evaluations

DFW Marchfest-April 12: It's no secret that quality post play is hard to find, and the 6-4 Lang possesses the tools and ability to be a nice pick-up for her school of choice. Lang has the right mixture of length and mobility that allows her to be a factor on the defensive side of the ball. She did a good job of locking down the paint with her shot-blocking ability and was able to avoid unnecessary fouls while still making a positive impact for her team. Lang is a bit more methodical on offense, especially when she is playing with her back to the basket. You could see the potential, though, as she would make a sound move but struggle to finish the play or kick the ball back out to a guard, giving up quality post position. As she becomes more confident in her ability to make plays in post-up situations, her overall effectiveness will increase. (Moore)

Texas Fall-Oct. 11: A catch and finish big offensively, who is starting to turn the corner. Showing more with her back to the basket and starting to seem more comfortable from the high post. Has to learn to play slow and accept contact. Has a set of tools you just can't teach. (Moore)

NAIC Southeast-Oct. 10: Nice size with all sorts of length. Has the ability to run the floor and demonstrates sound lateral speed for her size. She has a decent stroke from the perimeter but tends to spend too much time away from the rim for a player her size. Does have a jump hook that she can count on and finishes well on the open looks. Lots of tools and potential but will have to get past her avoidance of physical play. Has moments and the potential for much more. (Lewis)
