WNBA Comparison: Camille Little               WDN Score: 22                  WDN Rank: 16

Strengths: WNBA body (strong frame built to endure physical contact); loves to bang inside; excellent defender (can create steals opportunities due to quickness and can block shots due to good length); Solid handle in the open court; good rebounder for size; a good and willing passer in the half-court setting; very versatile; excellent rebounder on both ends; shows maturity and good decision making; nice touch around the basket;

Weaknesses: Lacks creativity offensively for a player who would project to be an undersized WNBA post and doesn't figure to overwhelm opponents with her athleticism; hasn't shown the willingness to step up offensive output when increased scoring is needed (during Purdue's biggest games); shows flashes of range out to 17 feet but needs to be able to hit that shot with consistency; still having "trust issues" after a knee injury suffered during the summer before what would've been her senior year; too soft around the basket;
