ESPN Player Evaluations

Showtime Nationals-July 09: complete ball skills; great vision; superior ball handling ability; throws a great lead bounce pass in transition;shoots it well off the dribble and is very smooth; nice looking stroke from outside; a top notch point prospect.

Deep South Classic-April 09: Kingston may be a good two hours north of the Big Apple, but why Coffey isn't a bigger deal is a major mystery. Think A.I., not artificial intelligence, but Allen Iverson with a hair clip. She's generously listed at 5-7, but like the male AI is fearless going to the hoop, with rapid-fire, AK-47 dribble moves and a creative, mainframe mind that strings the moves together in most unexpected fashion. A small crack between defenders? No problem, between the legs, back to front until a blur of a crossover. Coffey has a nasty hesitation off the dribble that puts defenders into suspended animation, allowing her to walk away for pulls. Closing defenders have little recourse against her quick-release threes. We'd love to see her have to defend bigger guards and go through a gauntlet of elite teams during a crowded summer event. We might even pay per view, she's that entertaining.
