Our next player profile comes from Belleville East in point guard Nyah Ford. Nyah is a 5'7 senior that has really burst on the scene this year.

Coach Kemezys changed the direction of how she would use Nyah. She became the starting point guard and after some time to adjust she has thrived in that role.

Nyah has the ability to handle the ball, distribute, score and also be a leader on the floor. She has the quickness and speed that many college coaches are looking for. When Nyah has the ball in her hands it is very difficult to keep her out of the lane. She handles it well enough to use her explosiveness to get anywhere she wants.
