“You have to gameplan for Emma specifically, because you don’t have a chance if you don’t stop her. She can play anywhere and everywhere on the court, from point guard to back to the basket. Her passes are unreal, her court IQ is unreal. She knows where teammates are if she doesn’t have an open shot. Nothing is forced, it all comes to her.”

Head Coach Head coach at Roosevelt High
