2015-16:  One of the most prolific shooters in the history of the program is ready for a finishing act that will benefit the team and etch her name in the record book…established as one of the elite long-distance shooters in the country, she has also improved her attack off the dribble, keeping opponents honest…doesn’t think twice about taking shots…runs the floor with ease, creating more scoring opportunities…at the other end, she’s a very physical, pesky defender, using her length to defend smaller and taller opponents alike…plays passing lanes extremely well.

2014-15: After establishing a reputation for instant offense off the bench, the third-year veteran took it to another level as a starter, reaffirming her status as one of the nation’s elite outside shooters…paced the club with 73 three-pointers (fifth in the GSAC), the fifth-best, single-season mark in school history…moved up to No. 7 on the program’s all-time three-point list with 149…her team-leading 42% from behind the arc was second in the conference and the fifth-best, single-season mark in program annals…drained a jaw-dropping, career-best eight trifectas vs. William Jessup on 1/10/15 when she also tallied a career-high 26 points…just ten days earlier, she went for 25 points on 7-10 shooting from behind the arc against Southwestern Christian (OK)…had five games with five or more treys, including a 5-9 outing and a team-high 19 points in the GSAC Tournament championship game win over Vanguard on 3/10/15…scored in double figures 15 times…took down a career-high seven boards vs. Hope International on 2/28/15…handed out a season-best five assists twice and had three four-steal outings.

2013-14:  Only a late-season injury, forcing her to miss a month of play, kept her from having the greatest long-distance season in program history…finished tied for second on the team in three-pointers and led the GSAC in three-point field goal percentage…equaled a career-best with five three-pointers against Bethesda on 12/12/13 and La Sierra on 1/9/14…recorded 10 double-figure outings, including a career-tying 15 points on four occasions…dished out a season-high four assists twice and had a trio of three-steal games.

2012-13:  Impressing in preseason camp, the freshman guard earned a spot in the regular rotation, playing in all but two of the squad’s games and averaging 11 minutes per outing…tallied in double figures three times, highlighted by a season-best 15-point performance vs. UC Merced on 12/29/12…scored all of her points in that game on a season-high five three-pointers…used four more treys to tally 12 points vs. New Hope Christian on 2/7/13…dealt out a season-best four assists vs. Hope International on 2/23/13 and had three steals on three occasions.

West Torrance HS:  A three-year varsity performer for the Warriors, she started her last two prep seasons…averaged 13.1ppg during her senior year (2011-12), leading the Warriors to a 26-7 record, the Bay League championship, the semi-final round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3AAA playoffs, and a second-round finish in the state tournament…she was named league Co-MVP, made the Daily Breeze All-Area second team, and was a first-team All-CIF Southern Section Division 3AAA selection…as a junior, she was part of a Warrior team that went 20-11 and lost in the second round of the 3AAA playoffs.
