...who is visiting the ND campus as I type.

So many things pop out in this article:
- closeness to her family, particularly her late grandmother;
- what basketball means to her;
- her high school coach calling her the best basketball player in New York State last year, even though Danielle Patterson was on that team;
- comparison to her as cross between Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi;
- mentioning her cross-over move to Dwayne "the Pearl" Washington (can you break an ankle now?).

Like her sense of purpose and thoroughness to see the process through.
I get the impression that she would not be fazed in the slightest knowing players like Anaya Peoples are also coming to ND. (Nor, based on what I've read, would Peoples mind playing with a player like Nixon.)

I like what I read. Stay tuned.

I wonder how her visit is going? *
