Higgs struggled a bit in the essay about leadership and service first half but got it rolling in the second. She’s a distributor and an athlete with a style that reminds me of South Carolina guard Tiffany Mitchell if she played the point. Her shot mechanics are both compact and smooth but she didn’t take many outside of 15 feet here. She rebounds the ball well from the perimeter.

Higgs is a true point guard who can beat by running an offense or off the bounce. An area of development will be to remain level throughout tough games. Like most young preps, Higgs can get frustrated with herself and let one mistake spiral into a larger one.
