adidas Spring Classic-April 09: The 6-4 post has all the tools to be a top-notch college post with size, strength, length, good hands, good balance and the ability to finish around the cup. The next evolution seems to be working from the high post, where she does a good job of finding the gaps and calling for the ball. More times than not she's going to attack the rim from there and would be an extremely tough guard, if she can prove herself from the elbow and short corners with her jumper. Defensively, she is capable of being a shutdown defender, if she wants to work at it. All the tools are there.

Summer 08: Uses her imposing physical presence to make an impact down low on both ends of the floor. She plays a smart game and reads her defenders effectively as she posts up and attacks the rim. In addition to her moves on the block she showed an impressive drive from the elbow. Defensively she sees the floor and provides tremendous weak side help. The Houston Elite inside game can match up with a lot of Division I teams right now.
