Andrea Watkins knocked down her shot from deep. She hustled after loose balls and jumped into passing lanes for the steal. She was hustling up the court ready for the pass in transition. She had a nice way of making plays when her opponents thought they had stopped the offense with her drives and points by the basket.
Mariah Fullenwider showed off her ability to shoot from deep on multiple occasions. She had a nice drive off the pass using power dribbles by the basket to score some points and move her opponent where she wanted to in order to create space. Her eyes were peeled for her teammates inside the paint sealing off their defenders. She anticipated passes on defense knocking the ball away from her opponents. She had a nice hustle back play blocking a shot in transition.
Sami Ward showed her range shooting from deep, and she slid into the gaps on defense to put up her shot. She had some nice exaggerated crossovers that she used to get around her opponents. She knew how to get separated from her opponents using some fakes and side steps to put up her shot. She hustled back and got a nice shot block opportunity.
