Childress is a fantastic option for a potential suitor needing outside shooting and a guard capable conditioning wise of chasing a tough scorer all over the floor. In that way, Childress provides a unique blend of shot making coupled with defensive execution. She has tightened up her shooting mechanics since we last saw her before the holidays at our Winston-Salem Academy.

Childress has a world of potential on both ends of the floor. She caught our attention here with here jump shooting. If anything, Childress is still too reluctant to take the open shot right now. She has the skill and understanding to be a real shot making presence on that end of the hardwood. Her work ethic is fantastic.

Simply put, Childress is the type of all around worker that coaches need on a roster. She made arguably the most instinctually sound basketball play of the whole weekend on a called double team trap late game situation. Childress was on the off side and shot the gap for a steal without having worked on rotations at all. Coupling that instinct with Childress ability to catch and shoot on the other end gives us good reason to project her as a next level prospect.
