“Nizhoni is major impact player for us. Her presence in the paint makes our offense run," said Red Devils head coach Lucas Myers. "In the last couple weeks Nizhoni has dealt with double and sometimes even triple teams all while still being efficient on the offensive end, either by scoring or passing it out to our great shooters. Nizhoni is a major part of why we as a team have been steadily improving this year and were able to secure a West Region Championship. We are proud of her growth on and off the court.”
