ESPN Player Evaluations

Battle in the Boro-July 11: Lots of size with good length and mobility. Still has some rough edges to her game but has moved from the raw category to one that is showing some reality to her potential. Her impressive ability to run the floor, cut in the halfcourt, flash in the post or rotate quickly defensively sets her apart from a large number of her peers in the post. There are flashes of instinctual play that assure you that top tier play isn't too far away and could become the norm rather than the exception. Defensively she's aggressive and physical and had a willingness to use her body to move opponents off the block. She'll still buy a few shot fakes too easily but her wingspan still allows her to contest even when out of position. (Lewis)

Nike Nationals-July 10: The 6-4 center from Wesleyan, Ga., has a long athletic body and a great strong build. Her movements are swift and fluid as she runs the floor. As a lefty she is a natural shot blocker and once she establishes herself in the paint on defense, opposing the players are very aware of her presence. Although she is still raw offensively, she calls for the ball keeping her hands ready and works hard to get good post position. When the ball is not perfectly delivered to her she doesn't hesitate to leave her feet and jump up to meet the ball, even trying to lay it up while ball is in the air. Causewell will need to work on her defensive footwork and rebounding position as she has a tendency to get pushed out of the box and reach over player's backs, picking up avoidable fouls. She is has tremendous upside because she has a college physique and if she puts in the work during the offseason she can be an excellent post prospect in the 2012 class.

Nike Regional Skills-May 10: Add another name to the emerging list of professional athlete's daughters to the rising prospects list. Causwell isn't as polished as a Kaela Davis or Diamond DeShields but she has tremendous upside. She has a college body that will only get stronger with time and training. She is a lefty who looks to be right at the "breakthrough" stage. She did some good things in picking up the drill work and wasn't afraid to try things in the live action either. For the front court she has very good athleticism, not in the Elizabeth Williams top shelf class, but that next rung.
