ESPN Player Evaluations

Summer 08: Polly Harrington of Kansas City is a gamer. She stands just 6-0 and plays the forward position, but her natural feel for the game and her strength have her playing with the effectiveness of a 6-2 player. She is aggressive and physical and does a good job of delivering contact to the defense so they can't get off the ground to bother her shot. Almost any taller defender will have trouble keeping her from facing up and going around them. Because of her athleticism so many try to move her out to the guard position but around the basket is where she makes the biggest impact right now.

Nike Skills May 08: Polly Harrington has a strong build and an aggressive style, especially in the paint. She's around 5-11 but her build and skills are best suited for the forward position. She makes up for the lack of height by using her body as well as many college players. She protects the ball well and finishes against taller defenders and has a nose for the ball. If she does try to transition to the wing position, she'll have to work on her handle and long-range shooting to be successful on the perimeter in college.
