Micaela Ellis Sophomore | Longwood University | Basketball | Oak Park, Mich.

POSITION: Guard.

MY START: I started playing basketball when I was 4 or 5. My dad played basketball in college (Western Michigan) and my older brother played. I watched them play basketball in the back yard and got really involved with it.

BIGGEST INFLUENCE: My dad, definitely. He has just been there from the start and has given me all the knowledge he has or has been taught.

MY TEAM: I would say my team now has more of a family feel than any other team I have been on. We are all just really close.

FAVORITE SPORTS MOVIE: “Love and Basketball”

WHEN I GRADUATE: I want to help athletes take their game to another level. I want to work with them on optimizing their performance.
