Goes by Nneka (Neck-A)…Hometown is Tomball, Texas…Has three younger sisters: Chiney, Chisom and Ernima… Chiney plays basketball at Stanford.
Nneka is a very versatile forward that can literally do it all in court. She can defend all 5 positions. She has a very athletic body that helps making very difficult plays look easy. She is a genuine scorer, she can send the ball to the net in a thousand ways. She can shoot from outside, drive, and strong post up moves. Very explosive 1 on 1 she can blow by opponents facing the basket or with her back to the basket. She always plays with great intensity, going after every ball on court. Very good rebounder, and seems to spring up faster than everyone else and goes for the offensive board almost after every shot. Good passer, she can create for herself or her teammates.
