◊ Lists Sacramento as her hometown because she lived there, where her father played for the Sacramento Kings, when she was born; however, attended high school at the Wesleyan School in Norcross, Ga.

2013-14 Season
◊ Played in 20 games, averaging both 1.6 ppg and 1.6 rpg.
◊ Played against four different former teammates from the Wesleyan School during the season - Katie Frerking of Auburn, Kendra Talley of Presbyterian, Holli Wilkins from Furman and Taylor Blackmon of Kennesaw State.
◊ Checked in with 16:49 left in the first half against Ohio State, what was then her earliest game action ever.
◊ Quickly recorded a career-high eight points versus Furman - the final of which came on a beautiful catch and layup on a Sydnei McCaskill pass that covered three-quarters of the court.
◊ Solid outing at Rutgers when forced into a season-high 15 minutes of playing time due to foul trouble among UGA's other post players.
◊ Was the first player off the bench for the Lady Bulldogs against No. 5 Tennessee.
◊ Made a huge steal with 1:11 left in the LSU game. Batted a ball away from Theresa Plaisance and then dove on the ball to gain possession before Andy Landers signaled a timeout. That play came with UGA up 65-61 and allowed the Lady Bulldogs to extend their lead to six on a pair of Erika Ford free throws eight seconds later.

2012-13 Season
◊ Lefty post player with an impressive ability to run the floor and also to turn and score.
◊ Saw action in 17 games, including four outings of double-digit minutes.
◊ Despite limited action, led or tied for team-high honors in blocks in six contests (S.C. State, Belmont, St. Bonaventure, New Mexico, Lipscomb and South Carolina).
◊ Scored seven points and grabbed six rebounds in a season-high 17 minutes of action against Belmont.
◊ Blocked three shots in nine minutes of PT against St. Bonaventure, at that point equaling the most swats by any Lady Bulldog in a single game during 2012-13.
◊ Impressively recorded three rebounds and a block in three minutes of PT against Arkansas in Athens.

High School
◊ Coached by Jan Azar at Wesleyan.
◊ Invited to attend USA Basketball U18 National Team Trials in May 2012 but had to decline the invitation due to a conflict with Wesleyan's graduation.
◊ Member of four consecutive Georgia Class A State Championship teams at Wesleyan.
◊ Helped Wesleyan's Lady Wolves to back-to-back top-20 finishes in the ESPN's Powerade Fab 50 high school rankings - No. 20 in 2010-11 and No. 18 in 2011-12.
◊ As a senior, averaged 5.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game to help Wesleyan to a 29-4 finish.
◊ As a junior, averaged 6.4 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game for the Lady Wolves, who finished the season with a 31-2 record.
◊ As a sophomore, averaged 4.8 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game for a 28-4 Wesleyan squad.
◊ Saw spot time on the Lady Wolves' varsity squad as a freshman, a team that finished 29-4 (No. 35 in the ESPN Fab 50 poll) and featured current Lady Bulldog teammate Anne Marie Armstrong.
◊ One of four Wesleyan classmates to sign Division I women's basketball scholarships along with Holli Wilkins (Furman), Jordan Frazier (Wofford) and Missy Byrd (Air Force Academy). All told, 17 Lady Wolves have gone on to play Division I hoops since 2004.
◊ The daughter of Duane Causwell, a standout collegiate player at Temple and a 12-year NBA veteran.
◊ Duane Causwell was a member of Temple's 1988 "Elite Eight" team and in 1989 established Temple blocked shot records for a single game (10 vs. Penn State) and season (124) that still stand.
◊ Duane Causwell was selected by Sacramento with the No. 18 overall pick in the first round of the 1990 NBA Draft and went on to play 12 seasons with the Kings (1990-97) and Miami Heat (1997-2001).
