Lexi Held Scouting Report
Lexi has prototypical size for both guard positions. As a shooting guard, she is a three level scorer that can create her own shot against all sized defenders. As a point guard, she is very unselfish and makes the right play all the time. Her size allows her to bully small guards, but her quickness and ball-handling ability gives her an advantage against bigger players. Defensively, she sits down and really makes it tough on either guard position.
