COACH ROFF SAYS
"Lexi is a back that brings good size and ball-winning ability. She defends well, plays smart, and does a nice job connecting out of the back. Lexi's high school team won the Indiana state championship this past fall, and she was recognized as the Mental Attitude Award recipient at the state finals. We are excited to add an in-state player of Lexi's ability and character."
