Kelli Van Tassel has seen a lot of Colorado Mesa basketball games from the bench as the redshirt sophomore has spent most of her career in a reserve role. Given a chance to start, Van Tassel has jumped at the opportunity. Playing out of position at power forward, Van Tassel gives the Mavs solid defense and rebounding during her time on the floor.

Seizing opportunity

Mavs’ Van Tassel takes advantage?of her chance in starting lineup

For two years, Kelli Van Tassel sat on the bench and watched the Colorado Mesa women’s basketball games.
Her redshirt year, she practiced every day, then got all dressed up on game nights and cheered on her teammates. Last season, she got into nine games, usually at the end of blowouts, playing a total of 29 minutes and scoring nine points.
