Blue Chip Oct '10:Girls' basketball is entering a phase in its evolution where positions are starting to be redefined and it is cause for a bit of confusion. Is someone, like Pfirman, who is 6-2, who can handle the ball fairly well and shoot it from range, really a wing? Or isn't she closer to a really diversely talented forward? We're maybe still old school enough to believe the latter. Pfirman has a nice, strong basketball body. She is tough and plays hard all the time, has nice touch around the basket, as well as out to the corners and foul line extended. She rebounds and blocks shots. The fact that she can be a reliable ballhandling outlet when your guards are under defensive siege and has a nice knack for delivering the ball to open teammates means Pfirman offers some really attractive, added benefits -- the type of recruit who actually can be rather valuable in an era when most post prospects may be lacking dimensions that a more-dynamic forward prospect can supply.

Blue Chip-July 10: With her size and versatility, this 6-2 forward for Williamsport, Pa., had the college coaches on the sidelines raising their eyebrows and taking notes. While playing mostly the forward spot, you can't help but to watch and wonder if there might be some perimeter play on her agenda at the next level. She's got good ball skills and a reliable stroke with some range already. Her play on defense is solid and well schooled and there's no hesitancy to push and shove. What's really eye catching about Pfirman is her movement on the floor. At either end, she's in constant motion and it all appears well thought and with intent. Her instincts and understanding of the game are sharp and advanced for her age. An in air touch pass on the break in an early game was a play any athlete on any level would have been proud to make.
