COACH'S COMMENTS: Ellie has come back to the Flames program and worked hard on her fitness to be in great shape. She will add a huge amount of depth to our 4 and 5 rotation working in tandem with our other bigs. She has some nice back to basket moves but also has the ability to step out to mid-range to shoot the ball. Ellie also is an outstanding offensive rebounder who will add a great deal to our offensive structure.
