Strengths: WNBA center size, strength, and height; nice range on jump shot out to 15 feet (good for a center); a vocal leader and encouraging upperclassman; plays within self (does not try to do something she can't); capable of guarding perimeter players for stretches; runs the floor well; runs the floor well;
Weaknesses: Questionable work ethic and confidence; offensive game is underwhelming and too simplistic for pro game and for a player her size; prone to committing "cheap" fouls often against players who aren't her primary assignment; not an aggressive enough force on the boards(often just tips rebounds); turnover waiting to happen;
