Coach Moore's thoughts on Alex: Alex is an exceptional athlete who makes plays and attacks the boards on both ends of the floor. She has the ability to slash to the basket as well as hit the open “3”. Her unique combination of speed and size makes her a matchup problem for opposing defenses. Her shot blocking ability makes her a formidable foe around the basket, forcing opponents to get around her.
