Overall Evaluation:

Pulliam is one of the best players in college basketball and should be looked upon as a first round pick in next years WNBA draft if she stays consistent bringing the same production we just saw in Northwesterns win over Eastern Illinois. I see her being a PG at the next level but able to play SG in stretches. She’s as complete a guard as there is in the college game and with improvement with her shot selection, which will improve her efficient, she has a shot to be an all star caliber talent at the next level.
