SCOUTING REPORT

Laken is the type of player that makes things happen every time she steps on the court. Providing an offensive spark: pushing in transition, hitting dribble pull-ups, attacking all the way to the rim, and moving off the ball. She's a combo guard that has a knack for crashing the boards and staying active on defense.

She can take control at the point guard position, slowing the pace when needed and setting up the team offense. Her ability to create and find the open player provides scoring opportunities for others.

Laken stared the 2020-21 season with an impressive stat line of 16 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.3 steals per game for Bad Homburg. Her strong play earned Laken a mid season change to the DBBL, signing with Nördlingen.  

Laken brings to the table an unmatched work ethic, determination, and the“ultimate teammate” mentality.
