More About Tess Sussman
"Sussman is an effective swing player who uses her length and strength to her advantage. She runs the floor very well, can rebound and push the ball in transition with no problem. She knows how to draw defense and find her teammates, and carves through the lane with a variety of attacks and finishes. Crafty and left handed, Sussman catches defenders off guard with a very quick first step to the hoop. She can hit the spot up jump shot as well, and uses changes of speed and direction to her advantage. Defensively she has a great motor and never stops hustling." - Northeast Girls Recruiting (NEGR)
