Ema Schumer will always be one of my favorite players to coach and watch play the fun game of hoops. Early on, Ema played with a boys’ team in our gothambasketball.org league. She was a crafty, smart, tough guard who could score and pass and figure out the flow of the game. We’ve always had a great time off the court with Ema in the program. Ema was in the small group of kids who went with us to Italy and Spain in 2014 on one of the best trips ever. It’s been a joy to sit from the stands and watch Ema love her high school playing experience. I’m happy for all that Ema has done as a player and student, and all that she will do at Harvard as she plays club hoops and participates in so many options that the Ivy League has to offer.

Ema is everything you can ask for as a point guard – smart, unselfish, and confident. She is always in control of the game and hit big shots consistently throughout the year. She is a terrific passer who pushes the ball up the court relentlessly and gets everyone involved in the offense. Most importantly, Ema is a great leader. She always works hard, stays positive with her teammates, and pushes everyone to get better.
