ESPN Player Evaluations

Summer 08:Eliza Pierre, the 5-7 guard out of Pasadena, Calif., may have set a new standard for perimeter players this summer. Her ability to dictate a game from the defensive end of the floor is something rare and even more so, something valuable to college coaches. It's not just her defensive ability, which speaks for itself. The way that she embraces the role and focuses on being that "stopper" for her West Coast Premier team set her apart from the majority of the players she lined up against. Her harassing on ball defense is highlighted by great speed and quickness and tremendous anticipation. Her offensive skills continued to improve throughout the summer as she became a more attacking player and looked for her own scoring options. A consistent and reliable jumper will allow her to become a threat at both ends of the floor. Nike Skills May 08:Pierre might have been the quickest player at the Nike Regional Skills Academy (Orange County). Her change of direction is super quick and learning to control tempo would make her that much harder to stop. She made quite a few plays on dribble penetration including a SportsCenter worthy wrap-around pass in the paint. Becoming a consistent shooting threat will also take her game to the next level and force defenders to stay closer than they should with her first step.
