ESPN Player Evaluations

Nike Nationals, July 2011: Kornet is a matchup problem as soon as she hits the floor. At 6-2, she has the ability to knock down shots from the perimeter and enough size to post up a smaller guard in the paint. (Gray) Click for the rest of Kornet's Tip Sheet reference.

Battle in the Boro, July 2011: While this 6-0 wing's performance didn't translate into championship success in the Boro, her overall play had recruiters and evaluators alike talking on the sidelines. (Lewis) Click for the rest of Kornet's Tip Sheet reference.

PBR Super 64-July 2011: Utilizes good size to her advantage on the perimeter. Smooth and fluid stroke makes her a threat at almost any range. Skill set allows her to put it on the floor as well and the pull up is just as effective as her spot up. Cuts effectively off screens or even on simple basket cuts. Has a good awareness of defenders and rotations with a willingness to give it up to a teammate with a better look. Gets out in the lanes on the break but occasionally settles for the jumper rather than forcing defenders to make choices in numbers situations. Has the size and lateral footspeed to be a solid perimeter defender. (Lewis)

PBR Super 64-July '10: Kornet has a very nice overall game from the perimeter. Her 6-0 frame gives her a size advantage over most perimeter defenders. She has a nce step back moce to create additional separation on her 3-point shot. Can post and passes well out of the double team. Needs to increase the defensive intensity. Will need to increase foot speed to warrent early playing time at the next level. (Powell)

The ESPNU HoopGurlz Terrific 25 prospect showed the skills and versatility that earned her place in the top 25 early but seemed to be gassed and sat significant amounts of games later in the tournament. Even playing tired she showed the ability to use her size and athleticism to make plays. At 6-0 and with handle she is capable of beating defenses with the pass or scoring. She is a good perimeter shooter and she makes good decisions. We've seen her turn it up and carry a team in the past so this week was a bit of an anomaly but the potential to be a major contributor at a BCS conference showed through the fatigue. (Hansen)

Fall '09: At 6-2 with a nice long and high release, Texas native Nicole Kornet has all the makings of a textbook small forward at the highest level. Kornet was one of the top shooters at the camp and also showed the ability to find openings, due primarily to her height and willingness to always look up the floor. She will need to add a little more dribble penetration to her game to keep from being labeled as a one-dimensional player. Additionally, she will need to establish a mid-post game against smaller defenders. But overall the problems she could cause with her size and shooting stroke is enough to establish her superior small forward game. Texas has produced several elite players over the years and we think Kornet will soon be added to that list. (Powell)
