Coach Moore's take: "We love Akela's length and her ability to run the floor. Sometimes it is hard to find someone at that height who is able to get up and down the court in transition, so we are excited about that. We're looking forward to getting her stronger and helping her maybe be a little more physical as a player, but she has great potential."
