OVERVIEW: Nicknamed "Brit" or "Chip," Mallory is an excellent leader on the court and in the locker room, who was an integral leader as a co-captain on Notre Dame's 2010-11 national runner-up team. Noted for her toughness, she's a smart, feisty wing who has made important contributions as part of the Fighting Irish rotation on both ends of the floor … returns for her final season of athletic eligibility in 2011-12, after missing the majority of the 2008-09 campaign with a knee injury. She boasts a balanced offensive skill set, mixing effective perimeter shooting with solid ability to finish inside with contact. A good student of the game, who is an ideal fit for Notre Dame's offensive package due to her strong court sense, talent at reading defenses and moving well off the ball. Having been a highly underrated defender, the 2010-11 season provided an opportunity to show off her instinctive knowledge of positioning and rotational responsibilities. Her quick hands and nose for the ball make her a constant nuisance for opponents at the defensive end. It's also easy to say Mallory enjoys the challenge of playing when stakes are highest.
