Thornton’s double-double (28pts, 17rbs) lands her Player of the Week award – Nov 25, 2014

2014:  Morovis (BSNF Puerto Rico League):  League MVP, averaged League Best: 22.9ppg, 12.2rpg and 1.3bpg

2014 Summer: WNBA- Washington Mystics.  Played in all three exhibition games and hit a pair of game-winning free throws against Indiana.

Scouting Report: Great rebounder and can defend 1-4 players….good 3 pt shooter. The most competitive player in school history according to her coaching staff.  Plays with an extremely high intense motor.  Very difficult to match-up against; too athletic for post to defend, too strong for guards to handle.  Played the power forward position for UTEP but would likely play at a small forward in the WNBA.
