Mark on what winning the Aliyah Boston sweepstakes will mean for Indiana and their existing frontcourt:

I wrote in my lottery preview earlier this week that I just think the biggest thing they need is more talent. Which, you know, duh. … I think they’re in a really interesting place because, especially with how good Queen Egbo looked at times last year too, she still is very raw offensively and needs to figure things out, I do think there is some interesting stuff [Indiana can do.] I know NaLyssa played the three at times in college, so there’s stuff that they could do that could be really interesting with being funky in their frontcourt.

Mark on Toledo’s Quinesha Lockett, who has a chance to be a rare first-rounder from a mid-major conference:

She’s really good, man. I think, and maybe I’m biased because Quinesha’s actually the first player I ever interviewed in basketball, … I thought then she was really dynamic and interesting. She is really athletic, she’s really quick. I think the big thing for her is [her shot]. Her shot really popped her sophomore year, it went away more than a little bit last year but I think based on her indicators from the free-throw line, she’s been a good free-throw shooter for a few years now. I think [her shot] is gonna stick. She’s a good passer. I think defensively is where I like her most. She is active, she has good hands, she makes good rotations and doesn’t get caught napping on the ball.
