Quick ball handler who can push tempo. Excellent on ball defender does a good job slowing the ball down- creates turnovers. Shoots well from the wing. Athletic point guard. Sees the floor well and has lots of tools. - Prentice Beverly

One of the most exciting point guards to watch with very creative and flashy passing skills (like Sammy Prahalis or Lindsey Whalen)  She attacks the rim, has a nice runner, euro-step and can knock down the three.  Is a team leader and wants to take the big shot whent he game is on the line. - Kelly Kline
