End of the Trail-July 10: Nilles added depth and athleticism to her Spokane Stars squad at the EOT. She was impressive as she found much success jumping passing lanes and using her long body to create easy transition buckets off of her tenacious defense. She has soft hands and a great passing touch, making her a teammates dream. Offensively she likes to get to the middle of the floor off the bounce. Throughout the tournament she preferred to get to the elbow for the jumper. She will attack the rim and she reads her defense well. Her first step is quick, long, and strong. At times she settled for the pull-up without her defense forcing her to. Nilles is a dynamic player to watch. (Howe)

AZ Elite Spring Classic-April 10: Although Miss Niles is a gifted athlete who imposes a threat on the offenses end of the court, it was her hustle and denfensive prowess that stood out this weekend. With a loaded team, it seemed as though at times as if there wasn't enough ball to go around. Niles found other ways to contribute. She is a 6 foot forward who has a durable frame with a spring in her step. She uses that bouncy athleticism on the defensive side of the ball to get into opponets and force them to make bad decisions. She also has a knack for jumping passing lanes and creating turn-overs.
