HOW SHE FITS
If selected, Pohlen would instantly become the biggest guard in the Shock lineup at 6-feet. Having played in a winning program in college and being a key contributor in a signature win in against Connecticut earlier in the year and multiple tournament runs, Pohlen has a winning pedigree that will translate well in the pro game.
With Shanna Crossley out for the year, Pohlen's incredible mark from outside could possibly fill her void on the perimeter and the scoring department. Although not the fastest point guard in the draft, her size at the guard spot will bother many players in the WNBA and complement small scoring guards Ivory Latta and Andrea Riley extremely well.
The 2011 Pac-10 Player of the Year is expected to be a great player from a great program and her skill set will likely make an extremely positive impact on the Shock roster this season by filling a much needed outside shooting void.
