“We targeted Cheyenne for two reasons: one, her ability to finish at the rim, and two, her ability to knock down the three.” head coach Nicki Collen said in a statement. “Cheyenne has shown growth in her game year after year and we believe will only continue to get better. Her toughness, desire to compete, and her joyful attitude will only strengthen our roster. I’m thrilled she chose Atlanta.”
