5-foot-10, 2022 shooting guard/wing Maggie Keinsley knows how to make plays happen. Quick on her feet defensively, pressures her opponents to force turnovers. She anticipates opponents’ passes with keen off-the-ball defense, getting deflections and steals while hustling down court for the lay-up. Demonstrates “drop dime” passing to open teammates on the fast breaks. Solid ball handling right and left. Precise perimeter shooting, but also takes on opponents by driving past them with swift head-fakes. Can get into the paint traffic and finish with a very effective floater jump shot. Gets open behind the 3-point line and calmly squares up to the basket. Knows how to get open in the post and power up strong for shots/rebounds. Hardworking and fights for all loose balls. Teammates know to get the ball in Maggie’s hands for 3-pointers when it comes down to the wire to help win the game. Solid D2, NAIA talent. Maggie also shines off the court, sporting a 3.9 GPA.
