695HOOPS WHERE IT'S ALWAYS ALL ABOUT THE GIRLS
Ke'la Ballard is dynamic point guard who is capable of controlling the game on both ends of the court. Arundel's senior (2013) standout averaged 15 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists per game. I was impressed as I watched her box out much bigger players and drive fearlessly to the basket. Ms. Ballard answered a few questions for 695Hoops.com.
