Scouting Report: 

Gunner on offense & a big fighter on defense. She really has no conscience on offense – takes shots no matter how the defense is playing her and is pretty fearless in the moment. Not afraid of contact, either. Always ready to shoot, always confident. She produced 10.7 per 18.5 minutes in her rookie season in Greek A1, at the age of 21. These numbers are unbelievable, she was the 2nd Greek scorer of the League per 40 minutes (23.1 points per 40 minutes).

She showed her fearless spirit & her offensive repertoire  in European Championships U20 where she produced 11.4 points per 25.4 minutes.

But she’s so much more than just a good scoring guard. Her all-around game bloomed in the European Championships Tournament where she led the National Team of Greece in almost every statistical category. Defensively, she proved  that she is one of the smartest on-ball defenders with great sense of covering the passing lanes. There’s no better proof of this tendency, than her ‘Leader in Steals’ award in the last European Championships U20 (3.4 steals per 25.4 minutes – insane 5.35 steals per 40 minutes).   She  fights all screens, vocal leader for her defense, tries to keep everyone on the same pace that she produces, she always manager  to stay in front of her player.

Her speed & explosiveness make her a massive weapon on the open court. Transition master.

She can create her own shot & create for others (Assists Leader in European Championships U20 – 4.9apg).
