ESPN Player Evaluations

Arnold has great mobility for her size and it has allowed her to play most of her career on the wing. She stands 6-feet-4-inches, a size most player get forced into the paint. Her mid-range game is deadly. She can get her shot off from the mid-range against almost anyone because of her high release and ability to finish with touch off balance. She is a capable three-point shooter. Her footwork around the basket is very sound and she can finish with a hook or drop-step with either hand. She needs to get stronger and be able to defend interior players her size. Aggressiveness could be increased as well.
