Battle in the Boro-July 10: The coming out party for Hammond continues as she establishes herself among the elite in the class. Of course it's not like she was ever a secret but the maturation of her physical skills as well as the refinement of her game seem to hit their stride at the same time. There's a smooth, powerful characteristic to her play that makes her appear as if she's toying with opponents. There's versatility to her game as well as she's effective at the high post or in the paint. She's a force on the boards and a physical defender. There aren't many situations where she wouldn't be an impact contributor. (Lewis)

Deep South Classic-April 10: This Bluegrass State product caught the attention of everyone over the weekend. Hammond is a very well-built 6-2 forward with a game that is as refined as we saw out of any player in the Class of 2011 during the event. The Kentucky Premier star has the physicality that allows her to score on the block, but her ability to involve others while on the perimeter is what's most attractive about the Rockcastle (Ky.) County junior. Displaying the ability to find cutting teammates with pinpoint precision on her passes, Hammond was more then comfortable away from the basket. She has the ability to shoot and make the 3-point shot with consistency. The lefty plays at a pace that keeps her under control and one step ahead of the competition.
