According to Prospectsnation.com her strengths are, court awareness, versatility, ability to finish with her left hand, range on her jump-shot and her coachability. They say her weaknesses are guarding quicker players on the perimeter and her footspeed in general. Check out some of her highlights at North Paulding High School.
