WNBA Comparison: n/a                                              WDN Score: 84                 WDN Rank: 1

Strength: Has a knack for scoring in the paint; takes contact well; a physical specimen, very powerful pro build; a prolific rebounder on both ends, which speaks to her high basketball IQ; very aggressive offensively; great shot blocker; has great hands and catching ability; takes smart shots that she's known to hit; tough to stop in the paint in half-court situations; nearly unstoppable when at the block;
 
Weaknesses: Needs to drop weight and work on conditioning; struggles against players more athletic than her; doesn't run the floor well yet needs to be a greater factor in transition; prone to foul trouble; not a consistent free throw shooter; struggle against double teams despite being an improved passer; tends to lower shoulder and commit too many offensive fouls;
