Rouse’s scoring speaks volumes (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 2/9/2020)
“This year, I just wanted to be a better all-around player,” Rouse said. “I really wanted to improve at everything, on both offense and defense. I wanted to get stronger, too. My biggest improvement, to me, would be my strength.”
Putting the ball in the basket hasn’t been an issue for Rouse, who’s shooting 53% from the field and already has more than 1,000 points in her career. Her willingness to rebound on both ends of the court and get out in passing lanes also has been a major plus for Robinson.
“Alex knows how to attack and when to attack,” Love said. “She has a very high IQ and pays attention to detail, especially on defense.”
