?It wasn?t until midseason, that I felt like I was back to normal. My style of play give me many options when I am out on the court,? said Nair. ?I have a score first mindset and I know my job is to produce. I feel like the best way to be a leader on the court is if I have a shot, I need to take it and make it.?
?Brittany?s main threat is scoring and that can come from anywhere on the floor,? said Head Coach Nelson Schorr. ?She can really shoot the ball from deep, but her ability to score off the dribble is always there. She is very deceptive and creates opportunities from different angles, whether she is outside the arc or posted up in the paint.?
Nair finished the 2009-10 season with a school-record 546 points scored, a school-record 18.2 points per game average, and a school-record 187 field goals made. Her 94 free throws made ranked third all-time, while she ranked fifth with 62 three-point field goals made.
?I am very goal oriented and came in wanting to set a lot of records at Ursuline,? said Nair. ?So my accomplishments are exciting, but I have a lot more I want to accomplish. I want to reach the 1,000 point mark next season.?
?Brittany compares favorably to the past two big scorers in our program,? said Schorr. ?She is a great three point shooter similar to Whitney Blackburn and can put it on the floor and post up like Jessica Wood.?
Even though she has a tremendous ability to score, Nair?s game is very well-rounded. ?I feel like I can shoot from anywhere on the court, and also take a lot of players off the dribble,? said Nair. ?And with my height I can post up a lot of the guards in our conference, which gives us a lot of different options offensively.?
?Her ability to help our team goes beyond her scoring ability,? said Coach Schorr. ?Brittany has been a team leader for us on and off the court, as well as becoming a solid rebounder and playmaker.?
Despite having individual performance goals, Nair is dedicated to helping the Arrows compete in the AMC. ?This season we were hoping for a winning season, but with a lot of young transfer players we knew it would take some time to form chemistry as a team. We worked hard to give (Ashlie) Hargrove a good senior season, but we will learn from this season and continue to work hard as a team to improve and play much better next season.?
?I expect a lot of Nair next year,? said Schorr. ?She has the chance to be the all-time leading scorer in school history and with her knee at 100% next year that will allow her to do some things on both ends of the court that she might not have been able to do this past season.?
