ESPN Player Evaluations

Derby Classic-July 09: Another KC Select standout was Desiree Bradley. The 6-1 wing has quickness and length to spare, but what made her stand out in Kentucky was her shooting exploits. She drained five 3-point bombs in the first half against Dayton. She has a nice, high release and she gets the shot off quickly. Because of her height and length she doesn't need much room to get the shot off and she has the confidence to make defenders pay if they close out with their hands down.

Showtime Nationals-July 09: She struggles to finish at times; rebounds well from the wing; very active defensively; nice stroke from 3-point range.

Deep South Classic-April 09: Not as spectacular as the last time we saw her, as she was overshadowed a bit by Richa Jackson on her own team and spent a lot of time on the perimeter without the ball, or trying to mix it up inside. She is a better rebounder than she showed before; also a pretty good interior passer. Continues to intrigue with her combination of size, speed and ability to handle and shoot the ball.

Fall 08: Desiree Bradley carries a certain "wow" factor, being a 6-2 guard with a live, lanky body, quick feet and hands and speed with or without the basketball. The junior from Carl Albert High School in Oklahoma City, Okla., also has a very smooth, accurate stroke from deep, runs the open court like a deer and uses her quick hands and condor-like wingspan to great use on defense. During the Showcase team tournament, we saw her score 12 points in a few-minute span -- six on 3s and two manufactured off a steal. Like we said -- "wow."

Nike Skills May 08: Desiree Bradley is a 6-foot forward packed with lots of length. She plays taller than most six-footers but didn't show the physical style of play to dominate in the paint. She has some quickness and is coordinated enough to pick up on the footwork being taught. Getting stronger is the most urgent area for improvement and more than likely that will lead to a more physical style of play.
