Lobo women's basketball player Otto doesn't let diabetes stop her

Jannon Otto came to New Mexico after a superb high school career in California. She earned over 2,300 points and 1,100 rebounds at Victorville’s Oak Hills High, twice earning High Desert League Player of the Year honors. ESPNW rated her as the 16th best wing in the 2015 recruiting class with a 90-point rating on a scale of 100. Her ball-handling skills and slashing style have turned heads at UNM’s Davalos Center, putting the 6-foot-1 newcomer in the mix for major minutes when the regular season tips off next month.

Basketball fans who watch Otto on the court this season are unlikely to notice her condition. She often wears her insulin pump at practice but prefers to take a shot if necessary before or during games. Otto was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes just before her 12th birthday.
