"She's just ruthless," says Dena Evans, one of her basketball mentors. "She can take the heart out of a team with one shot."

Last Tuesday, Toliver hit Mercury guard Ketia Swanier in the eye with her elbow, causing blood to squirt from Swanier’s eye. Swainer hasn’t played since the incident, which came in a Phoenix victory . Toliver was given a flagrant foul, but was not suspended.
