WNBA Comparison: Deanna Nolan                         WDN Score: 0                   WDN Rank: 55

Strengths: An undersized, athletic two-guard who can score in the halfcourt and open court; relatively quick release on shot almost negates being undersized; a physical, quick defender who can read passing lanes; strong in transition; solid rebounder at the guard position; gets great elevation on jump shot; can seem unstoppable when hot;
Weaknesses: Needs to improve handle to play in the pros because of lack of height as a pure SG; very streaky shooter from the field; needs to work on three point shooting; not a great passer; could use work on free throw shooting; needs to be a consistent, aggressive player on the offensive ends;
