ESPN Player Evaluations

JOP Holiday Invitational-Jan. 12: Sometimes the most telling thing about a player is how she handles a tough game and how she responds afterward. Smith's team was held to 21 points in an opening-round loss to Hoover, but the 5-foot-11 junior guard responded with some great basketball the rest of the way. She showed her shooting touch, which has always been a strength, but her growth at making plays in other ways is the most exciting evolution in her game. Smith, the No. 52-ranked player in the ESPNU HoopGurlz Super 60, uses her size well to create off the dribble and showcased sharp court vision and the ability to deliver the ball on target to a teammate in traffic. She's the type of player who can give you the big scoring nights, but game-in-and-game-out she's going to fill different columns of the box score and compete to give her team the best chance to win. She might not be as good handling the ball as a Kelly Faris (Connecticut), but she has that hard-nosed competitiveness to do the little things that make a team successful. (Hansen)

JOP.com Holiday-Dec. 10: The 5-foot-11 wing is a good spot up 3-point shooter. She is a serviceable ball handler, has good court vision, and is a good passer. She is aggressive and likes to attack the basket, looking to score or draw the foul. She's a good free-throw shooter and gets to the line because she has the ability to post smaller players. She rebounds well for her position. Smith is a hard-nosed tough defender who makes up for her lack of speed with sheer grit and determination. She carried her team's scoring load and kept her team in the game against a tough Riverdale squad. (Beverly)
