She is going to be a monster rebounder and defensive stopper for us from day 1, and has all of the tools to develop into a very versatile and explosive forward for us. She also plays with a contagious energy and enthusiasm that brings out the best in her teammates.”

Why I chose Davidson: “I chose Davidson because of high-level academics that I would be able to receive, while also being able to play Division I basketball in a great small-town atmosphere.”

Why I chose Davidson: “The close-knit community at Davidson really appealed to me and the existing Australian connections within the program made my commitment to the Wildcats an easy decision in the end.”

She also has the capability of making her teammates better and stuffing the stat sheet in a variety of ways.
