Coaches Comments: Leila is a dynamic scorer who looks to expand her game during her sophomore campaign. A lefty three-point shooter, Leila was able to stretch defenses last year with her uncanny ability to knock down threes. After a summer of hard work, Leila has shown the ability to get to the basket which should make her a more complete player and scorer. A great defender, Leila has played the top of the Olympians’ vaunted 1-3-1 zone. She can also get out in transition due to her athleticism.
