EVANSTON, Ill. -- The 2013-14 Northwestern women’s basketball team has a number of new faces on this year’s roster with freshmen Nia Coffey, Ashley Deary, Christen Inman and Allie Tuttle joining the Wildcat family. All four freshmen have played so far this year and have contributed to the team’s 4-0 start.
You have already seen her play this year but it’s time to get to know Allie Tuttle, a 6-4 forward/center from Cary, N.C. A standout at Panther Creek High School, Tuttle was a first-team all-conference selection and all-district honoree. She led the Catamounts in scoring and was a four-year starter on the varsity squad. Off the court, Tuttle was an active member of the National Honor Society, an honor roll recipient and AP Scholar with Honors award winner.
Tuttle and the Wildcats hit the road for the first time this season, taking on No. 17 California Sunday in Berkeley.
