Draft Dreams: Amber Harris - Xavier

Welcome to the Tulsa Shock's 2011 WNBA Draft Preview. The Shock hold the second and seventh overall picks in the 2011 Draft that will be held on April 11th at the ESPN Offices in Bristol, Connecticut. Leading up to the draft, we will highlight the Top-13 prospects and see how each of them could fit in with the Shock's current roster.

INTANGIBLES:
Height: 6-5
Position: Forward

STATS:
2010-11: 18.7 points/10.2 rebounds/52.5% FG/32.3 mins/game


HOW SHE FITS
After breaking down the Shock's 2010 season, it can be argued that an athletic low-post scorer who rebounded profusely on both ends of the court and trap in Coach Richardson's system was exactly what the Shock needed. Senior Amber Harris could be that missing piece.

Despite being upset by Lousville in the second round of the tournament in what was earlier project as a Final Four year for Xavier, Harris led the team with 2.2 blocks/game and amassed 36 points, 19 rebounds, six blocks on 15-of-21 shooting from the floor in two tournament games.

Her ability to score with ease and at an extremely efficient rate would be an asset for any team in the WNBA and definitely fill a need in the paint for the Shock.
