ESPN Player Evaluations

Summer 08: Cal Swish guard Kelsey Harris from Brea, Calif., showed why she is so highly regarded in her state. She supplied a huge spark for the Swish when defenses were designed to take away the team's primary offensive weapon, Christina Marinacci. Harris showed deadly three-point shooting accuracy and the confidence to pull the trigger when given even the slightest big of space. Her quick release allowed her to score 18 first half points in one game. She knew she was hot, sprinted the floor in transition, and spotted up early before the defense could find her. The 5-10 Brea High School star does more than shoot the ball, she has a strong fundamental base and is a very good passer. Both her high school and her club team run plenty of offensive sets and she excels in that environment. Her athleticism is adequate but proving she can stay in front of the elite players at her position may hang out there a bit. People questioned that about another Brea star in years past, Jeannette Pohlen, and she proved that there is more to defending than raw quickness.

Nike Skills May 08: Kelsey Harris is a big, strong combo guard with wing size and point guard vision. She is a very good passer and is strong with the ball when she goes to score herself. She found herself matched up with quicker players at times, but Harris is a smart player who gives enough space to players she knows can get by her. She might be one of the big sleepers in the 2010 class like former Brea star Jeanette Pohlen (Stanford) was in 2007. Like Pohlen, she will do more than just try to score.
