Campbell says her idol is Pete Maravich, but there's more to the 5-10 senior than scoring and flash.

Reporting from Spokane, Wash. - Cynthia Cooper, Sheryl Swoopes and Sue Bird all made impressions on a young Doreena Campbell.
"He always came up with new innovative moves, new things to put into the game," Campbell says.
The smooth-dribbling Campbell will get her second opportunity Saturday when third-seeded UCLA plays 14th-seeded Montana in the first round of the NCAA women's tournament at Gonzaga's McCarthey Athletic Center.
Campbell - UCLA's "brain on the court," senior guard Darxia Morris calls her - directs the offense and averages 9.2 points a game for the 27-4 Bruins, who rebounded from a second-round NCAA tournament loss to Nebraska in 2010 to set a school record this season for regular-season victories.

James got an inkling of his daughter's determination in the months that followed. Doreena spent hours practicing alone in the driveway. The next season, she was one of the league's top scorers, and she developed into an accomplished club-circuit player by the time she entered high school.
Campbell led Edison to the state championship game in each of her last two seasons before choosing UCLA over Virginia, Vanderbilt and George Washington.
Now Campbell and the Bruins are hoping to take the next step. UCLA, which won the Assn. of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women national title in 1978, has played in only one NCAA regional final and has never advanced to the Final Four.
"This coaching staff, they're going to be making some waves," Campbell says.
