WNBA Comparison: Becky Hammon                WDN Score: 43                 WDN Rank: 7

Strengths: Lightning quick; valuable in transition as both scorer and passer; excellent three point shooter; makes smart cuts in the lane; strong finisher at the basket; reads passing lanes well; very scrappy defender; one of the better assists to turnover ratios in the nation; a very smart player; can carry a team offensively;
Weaknesses: Wirey frame may be an issue for WNBA GM's; could improve on free throw shooting; doesn't play in an extremely tough conference; will need to shift to point in pros, maybe limiting her offense;
