ESPN Player Evaluations

Smith shows a solid basketball IQ. Smith has a positive attitude on the court. She has very solid footwork in the post but often predetermined her moves. In many cases it was a step-through pivot she decided on even before the defense moved. On several occasions the defender was right there waiting for her, knowing that it was coming. Being more physical would really help her on both ends of the court. She is a strong kid and, at 6-4, creating the contact will take the defender%u2019s leaping ability away and with it their ability to bother her shot. Her drop steps and pivots often take her around the defender instead of into their hips or legs. As the weekend went on she did a much better job of staying low and making that first contact before catching the ball.
