ESPN Player Evaluations

End of the Trail-July 2012: Continuing to show progress in harnessing her potential. She is playing under better control in the halfcourt while also utilizing her athleticism in the open court. She is making plays with the pass in transition too. (Hansen)

Nike TOC-Dec. 11: Long athletic, nice up and under move, attacks basket, runs floor, good defender shot blocker, good on ball defender, nice 3pt stroke, rebounds well boxes out fundamentally sound, nice spin move, good passer, good ballhandler. (Beverly)

EOT-July 11: Showing all the things we got excited about during the high school season. She is a dominant defender and fantastic scorer in transition. her perimeter shot comes and goes but the fundamentals are there to be a truly dynamic wing scorer. (Hansen)

Nike TOC-Dec. 2010: Lots of size and length but exceptionally mobile. Can create off the dribble with sharp and controlled ballhandling. Reads defenders well one on one and utilizes an effective first step. Has good form and a smooth stroke from the perimeter but does shoot it off a narrow base, Lots of potential with both physical and basketball skills. Watch closely. (Lewis)

Nike TOC-Dec. 10: One of the most memorable performances of the day was that of Courtney Range, a 6-foot sophomore of St. Mary's (Stockton, Calif.). Although her team's efforts fell short in a quarterfinal loss to Brea Olinda (Brea, Calif.), Range was magnificent as she led her team in a valiant struggle. She proved herself to be a worthy leader and legitimate opponent.

Range's skill set is quite unique in that she is a true combo forward-guard who is a threat to put up points from anywhere on the court. She is long and lanky, yet athletic and graceful. She uses her tremendous reach and wingspan to scrape off every single rebound and control the boards. Offensively she can do just about everything in the halfcourt. Monday found her attacking the rim on numerous occasions. When the defense tried to force her to put the ball on the floor and take it a certain direction, Range simply read what the defense gave and blew by with that long first step of hers. It didn't matter if it she was attacking right or left, the result was the same -- points! When the defense spaced back to protect the lane she simply stepped behind the arc and drained a couple threes. No matter where she was on the court, Range was a threat. There may not be any hope of a championship trophy this week for the Rams, but the future looks extremely promising for Courtney Range.

Nor Cal Fall-Oct. 10: Very long and lanky, can handle to ball in the open court. Uses length to extend when attacking the basket. Will need get stronger and add bulk but overall a promising prospect. (Bodine)
