If one asked Misha when she first found her love for basketball, she'd most likely reply with she found that love while sitting on her father's lap watching Healey Davis playing against the Roots when she was two. Growing up in Boston meant there wasn't much in the way for space to put a hoop in the yard, but her father made a simple one for her and played with her. While watching games with his daughter Misha's father noticed her eyes didn't dart around at any sudden movement, like most children would, her eyes focused on the ball. With her dad's help she has honed this little ability into her greatest talent to read an opposing player's body movements for a tell to which way he'd take the ball. This translated into her making the Varsity team in High School her Sophomore year and an athletic scholarship to Harvaardwak University. At Harvaardwak she swiftly made the starting lineup for the team her freshman year, this also brought the ire of a few of the more financially well off players, one player even going so far to refer to her as 'Meal-Ticket Maxwell' and calling her a welfare case that player being Trent St. Croix. This in turn caused the biggest hurdle to her chances at playing professionally when she threw the ball and hit the student in the crotch. She was suspended from the team for the rest of the season but managed to stay at the school. Though her freshman year was cut short on the team Misha had still set a new school record of 73 steals in a season for a Freshmen. She was not permitted on the team her Sophomore year at Harvaardwak, but was permitted to return to the team the following year when the majority demanded her return. This gave her a new drive to prove she had been there because she earned her spot on skill and not money. She was instrumental in helping the Burgundies turn around the season from the early loses at the beginning of the year. Midway into November she was named Co-Captain and worked hard on building up a team so that way if one player was out they could still make a game out of a match. Harvaardwak would eventually finish the year making the Elite Eight in the FCAA tournament against the betting odds. She ended her Senior year with an impressive 98 steals the highest this year. Misha is no slouch when it comes to ball handling having the least amount of turnovers attributed to her of 30 and her successful passing percentage being in the high 80's. Some Boston sports writers have given her passes to teammate Ricardo Ortega as 'Logan to LAX trips' for the ball as the duo made plenty of clutch plays. Another nickname she earned from the same writers was the 'Queen of Thieves' moniker for all the steals and passes she would pick off. Misha is though not without faults, one is her temper. Being from at least three ethnic groups known for their passion and tempers it is no surprise she had one, though she has in recent years learned to focus into her playing ability, if pushed enough Misha will lash out, usually verbally. The other fault is due to her style of play Misha's blocking skills are a bit lacking and does draw a few fouls in games, but this can be corrected if a coach is willing to take the time with her.

2015-16 Season

Misha was selected by the Williamsburg Minutemen in the 2015 FBA Draft, then later traded to the Las Vegas Wildcards along with Damien Nathaniel, the 35th pick in the draft and $4 million in 2015-16 cap space for Sebastian Kosciusko and the 21st pick in the draft.
