Strengths: Possesses good anticipatory skills around the basket on offense and defense; runs the floor well for a big; great length and good athleticism provides a challenge for opponents on both sides of the ball; has shown flashes of being able to shoot the 15-foot jumpshot; handles double teams well
Weaknesses: Weak rebounder for 6-5; does not fare particularly well on either side of the ball against players her size (in particular elite posts regardless of age); does not position body well when playing defense, relying too heavily on her shot-blocking ability; limited post moves leads to reliance on playmaker to get involved on offense; lacks "killer instinct" to be the team's go-to scorer late in games (despite being the team's leading scorer)
