Point guard Shooting guard Small forward Power forward Center Odyssey
Lone starter back for Baylor, she'll be the tone-setter on a team looking to establish a new identity.
-- Mechelle Voepel
All-around scorer who still gets her points against great defenses. Tough, physical competitor.
-- Graham Hays
Perhaps the nation's best all-around player. An impossible matchup for opposing defenses.
-- Charlie Creme
Can do it all: shoot 3s, post up on the block and face up from the perimeter.
-- Kate Fagan
One of the few go-to centers in the game this year. Can score and defend the paint.
-- Michelle Smith
