ESPN Player Evaluations

Boo Williams-April 2013: Athletic lead-guard handles, directs and distributes; manufactures with midrange game to the arc; penetrates and dishes with confident persona. (Olson)

Winter 2010-11: The basketball skills and IQ are way beyond her years. She is maturing physically and learning how to lead a team. (Bodine)

NAIC-Oct. 10: This 5-7 point guard has been a topic of conversation for some time and as she gets more and more exposure folks will realize why. If you were able to order a point guard off a menu there aren't too many attributes that she doesn't possess. Yes, she's still only a freshman and it does show at times but so does her tremendous potential. She's got the quickness and speed that combines with ultra-sharp individual skills to allow her create scoring opportunities for herself as well as her teammates. Despite her smaller stature she finishes well in the paint and took more than her share of hits getting to the line. Her crossover and step-back shot has such a quick release that few defenders are going to be able to get a hand in her face. The same release serves her well on a pullup that she uses efficiently at almost any range. Add to that good court vision and a willingness to give it up and you have a point guard with whom folks want to play. Laterally on defense she can turn a ballhandler several times and still recover and contain her penetration. One of the biggest assets she brings to the floor right now seems to be a genuine enjoyment of the game that allows her to relax and play. If it remains a game and she continues to have fun out there, the rest will take care of itself. (Lewis)
