Opposing coach scouting report

“Savannah is an exceptional ball handler with an excellent change of speed and direction. She is also a very effective perimeter shooter; you can't give her any space. But more important than her basketball skill level is her toughness. She is a fierce competitor who doesn't back down from any challenge. She never seems to get rattled or frustrated, she always plays with a calmness that in-and-of itself can be intimidating. She is more than deserving of this honor, and I for one, am elated to see her graduate! Congratulations!"
