Coach Mitchell Weber:
“On the offensive end she’s very efficient I thought she was out most efferent offensive player She doesn’t shoot bad shots and the shots she does take, she shoots at a pretty high clip. I thought she led us in shooting percentage last year as a guard. And on the defensive end she’s pretty savvy. She’s not the fleetest of foot and she’s not the most athletic, she’s not going to chase people down and block a massive ton of shots, but she’s going to get her hand into some stuff because she’s going to be in the right spot. She passes it well. I think what she lacks in athleticism, she makes up for it in high IQ and just being savvy and being efficient.
“She’s on pace to score over a 1,000 points (Career).”
