ESPN Player Evaluations

Raatz Fence-Jan. 09: Iroquois guard Adia Mathies is the odds on favorite in many people's eyes for Miss Basketball. The explosive 5-9 Kentucky signee is an offensive juggernaut. She has the ability to put the ball on the floor and get by virtually any defender and finishes effectively in traffic. Add to that a smooth jumper and you've got a tough match up for any defender. It's the combination of both her skills and athleticism that makes her so effective. Defensively she is active and gets a hand on a lot of balls that lead to opportunities at the other end.

Spring 08: Fantastic quickness and lift. A great athlete who can get to the cup and is in her element playing in a transition game. She can stop and pop off the dribble or elevate over the help defense. Defensively her quickness and aggressiveness allow her to make an impact.

At the Super South Showcase she showed her dynamic scoring guard abilities in spurts. She has great quickness and the 5-9 guard has quick hops to make her an excellent scorer in transition. Working her off-hand would take her to the next level.
