If a team is looking for size and an ability to score from the center position, then Ohio State's Jantel Lavender may very well fit the bill. Lavender, who recently passed former Lynx guard and Ohio State great Katie Smith atop the school's career scoring list, combines smooth post moves with a face-up game out to 18 feet. The three-time Big Ten Player of the Year currently leads the conference and ranks 6th in the NCAA by averaging 22.7 ppg. The Big Ten's all-time leading rebounder, Lavender also leads the Big Ten and is 14th in the nation with 10.9 rpg in 2010-11.

Coach Reeve's thoughts

A 6-4 skilled, efficient center who can score (22 ppg) and rebound (10+ rpg).
