WNBA Comparison: Mery Andrade                  WDN Score: 34                 WDN Rank: 10

Strengths: A very blue collered, scrappy prospect; strong rebounder down low on both ends; great on ball defender; acts as a pest defensively; can score down low; loves to go off the dribble from the perimeter; looks for her teammates and is good a passer; strong in transition; shot blocking threat, even against bigger foes; draws charges well; usually makes smart decisions;
Weaknesses: Sort of one-demensional (only drives); needs to work on a three point shot; a bit undersized when playing the post; needs to work on free throw shooting; sometimes has trouble with ball control; could tighten up handle a bit; questions surround her WNBA position; prone to committing bad fouls; struggles in the paint at times against players considerably bigger;
