Character

Malott is hard-working, consistent and tough. She is dependable and has a positive attitude on and off the court. As a team co-captain last season, Malott led by example with both mental and physical toughness. She is also a member of Dayton’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.

Community

Over her three-plus years as a Flyer, Malott has participated in several community service projects and activities both with her team and on her own. In September 2014, Malott and her teammates spent an afternoon at the Dayton Habitat for Humanity ReStore, and in October she participated in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk. Malott works locally with DECA, an after-school program helping inner-city sixth- and seventh-grade children with homework, and every winter the team participates in a UD event called Christmas on Campus giving out presents to local children in need. She is also a volunteer at a local day care center.

Malott has been named to a conference post-season team all three years she has been a Flyer, including the Atlantic 10 All-Conference Team this past season. As a junior, Malott earned mention on the All-Conference Second Team and on the All-Rookie Team her freshman year. Last season, she led the team and ranked fifth in the league with 8.1 rpg while also leading the team with nine double-doubles. Malott was one of five players in the A-10 to rank in the top five in rebounding and top 10 in scoring for the season. She is just 38 points from reaching the 1,000-point mark for her career while having corralled 552 rebounds over the last three seasons.
