2012 Boo Williams Invitational

Tucker, a wing shooter, combines a solid athletic frame with the ability to strike from behind the arc from numerous locations.  She can also hurt the opposition from middle distance although she appears to favor the long ball.  She is considered to be one of the best shooters with size in the 2013 class.  Like most shooters, she can have a bad game as was demonstrated when she was held to just five points in the tournament final.  Her overall performance in the other five games made her a worthy All-Tournament team selection.  - Bob Corwin

2012 U18 USA Basketball Training Camp

Tucker passes the eyeball test, she looks to be in better physical shape than anyone in camp. She has a quick first step and can take physical contact.  During the scrimmage against Brazil, Tucker performed very well in transition and consistenly knocked down the pull up jumper.  - Kelly Kline
