Scouting report

Annika is a very versatile forward that has the ability to post up, attack off the dribble, and knock down shots from beyond the arc.  High basketball IQ, finishes with either hand, runs the floor well, and finishes through contact.  Her ability to roll or pop out of pick n roll situations creates tough matchups for defenders and her range as a shooter makes her an even tougher cover.

Defensively, Annika has the length, mobility and size to defend multiple positions or switch.   

 

The Finnish National Team player is off to a great start in France, averaging 17.7 pts, 5.5 rebs, shooting 53% FG and 37% from beyond the arc.
