How'd She Get to College Park?

Pavlech was the No. 23-rated point guard in ESPN's HoopGurlz ratings for the class of 2012. She would've been a bowler if she didn't play basketball, but she did play basketball, and she committed to play for Brenda Frese in college. She was an All-American honorable mention by the Sporting News in 2011.

Career Highlight

Pavlech scored 20 points in a win over No. 24 Miami during her freshman season. She's also had a couple of 8-assist games, but none since her freshman season.

Dream Season

With Lexie Brown transferred away and Laurin Mincy in the WNBA, Pavlech seizes Maryland's starting point guard job, averages 6 points and 6 assists and stewards Maryland's offense toward another Final Four.

2015-16 Prospectus

Pavlech seems to have the inside track on Brene Moseley to start at point guard, but it's hard to be sure. Pavlech has been Maryland's starter there in its two exhibition games, which suggests she'll begin the season in the lineup. Most likely, she and Moseley will shoulder that load fairly easily. Pavlech's job isn't to fill the hoop, but to facilitate an offense that features skilled scorers like Shatori Walker-Kimbrough and Kiah Gillespie.
