Name: Kristi Toliver
Height: 5'7"
Position: Guard
Class: Senior
School: Maryland



Considered by many to be one of the best point guards in the nation, Toliver is an excellent shooter perhaps the top outside threat in this draft class. She has shown the ability at Maryland to push the tempo and find players in transition easily. Toliver has excellent court vision and savvy and plays much like an experienced veteran. The 5-7 guard may be the most pro-ready of this class and will probably be a top-10 selection and the first or second point guard chosen in the 2009 WNBA Draft.



"Toliver is a very good shooting point guard and, like Coleman, knows how to win."



Graham Hays, Women's Basketball Contributor for ESPN

Toliver is the best pure scorer in this years draft class. She has almost limitless range and is fearless getting to the basket off the dribble. If shes able to guide a young Maryland team to a strong postseason run, it will go a long way to answering some criticisms, whether fair or not, about her ability to lead a team from the point. Like the NBAs Baron Davis when he was in Golden State, she may be best served going to a team that needs her to score.
