Summer 08 II: Ieasia Walker, a 5-7 point guard from Amityville, N.Y., and the NY Elite Silver Bullets, is going to put a big smile on her college coach's face as a freshman a year from now. Her game already has a lot of the components that set the high school and colligate games apart. She is physically strong, plays aggressive and is just a tough competitor in general. She has one on one skills that allow her to penetrate and create both her own looks and improve those of her teammates. Her willingness to push the ball in transition keeps defenses on their heels and often leads to mismatches. Her perimeter shot will be the key to forcing defenders out on her and giving her the opportunity drive and make things happen.

Summer 08 I: Walker is best taken in multiple doses. I guarantee, she'll grow on you.

There is somewhat of a tendency to overlook Walker because she doesn't do much of anything with a modicum of flash. She does do a lot of things very well, however, and the sum of her parts is an essential ingredient to a winning team.

Fast and quick-footed, she is an effective defender, very polished off the dribble, with good court vision and strength to finish inside in traffic. She is very adept at attacking the rim and getting to the free-throw line.
