Title IX-Jan. 11: Having spent her high school career at Fairmont Heights, a program that finished in last place in Prince George%u2019s County, Hawkins was a veritable unknown. Fast forward to 2010 and she is playing center for Riverdale Baptist, ranked No. 18 in the POWERADE FAB 50, and competing against some of the top talent at her position. At 6-foot-3, Hawkins has a solid build and can take up space down low. Her back-to-the basket moves aren%u2019t flashy, but she is efficient at finishing her layups. One feature that stands out about her is her hands -- they are soft yet strong; she can catch passes and secure the ball with one hand even when she is being defended closely. Hawkins is savvy enough to know that she isn%u2019t going out-jump more athletic opponents down low, so she positions her body at the right angle and use her strength to grab rebounds. Hawkins is playing with confidence and didn%u2019t seem the least bit intimidated as she battled with country%u2019s best post player, Elizabeth Williams. Her physical conditioning has improved since the beginning of the season, it is clear that she is taking the game seriously and is ready to compete at the college level. (Bodine)

Nike TOC-Dec. 10: Thick, solid build with some size. Impressive strength and a presence anywhere on the floor. Has a nice touch and soft hands for a player her size. (Lewis)
