After graduating from Oral Roberts University last summer, Allen was handed a place on the Olympic roster and while she only managed a couple of minutes on the floor in London, she will be hoping she can persuade Coach Jennings to let her prove her value under the basket. She has just completed her rookie pro-season in the Italian second division and had a consistent campaign with her rebounding skills very much her forte, something she also showed to great effect when representing Great Britain and England at youth level. She reads the game well and has good hands for a frontcourt player, managing to find steals and also regularly hustle in the paint at both ends of the court. She works hard off the ball for her teammates and whilst not prolific in terms of offensive production, she could be a reliable component of any frontcourt rotation.
