WNBA Comparison: Coco Miller                    WDN Score: 0                   WDN Rank: 55

Strengths: A very energetic player; excellent in transition as both a passer and scorer; unlimited range, especially from the three point line; very aggressive player offensively; likes to drive in the lane to score or create for others; very active defensively with quick hands and anticipation skills;
 
Weaknesses: A very streaky shooter who can go through long periods without hitting a shot (has been a very weak shooter from everywhere her final two seasons); somewhat of a "Murphy's Law" type, letting her thoughts of missed shots affecting her on the court too much; possesses a low basketball IQ (does not know the strengths and weaknesses of her teammates, leading to the vast majority of her turnovers); misses too high a percentage of her shots at the rim for a 5-11 player with a pro build; needs to work on consistency from three point; prone to commit untimely and unnecessary turnovers in the half-court setting
