Dara #2 White Jersey - 21 points, 8 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals


The veteran point guard had great 2019-20 season for Telge (Sweden) where she averaged 12 points, 6.5 assists, 5.8 rebounds, and 2.7 steals per game.

Her numbers in Sweden illustrate the type of all around player Dara is: the ability to score, but effectively creating for her teammates at a high level. She pushes the ball with great pace in transition, forcing defenses to account for her playmaking abilities.  Part of what makes her tough in transition is her court vision and ability to change to floor with a quick skip pass ahead or across the floor.  When creating for herself or attacking in isolation, Dara has great handle which she combines with a quick first step to really put pressure on opposing defenders.   

As a defender, Dara had quick hands and great instincts evidenced by her 2.7 steals per game. She has active hands in the passing lanes, pressuring opposing ball handlers, and often finishes defensive possessions by collecting the rebound.  The ability to rebound adds another valuable component to her overall game.
