“I’ve been in this league 13 years and I don’t think I’ve seen somebody miss their own shot and get it back so many times. She’s bouncy, she pops up, she gets the rebounds. You’ve got to guard her with a four with other people they put on the floor and it’s just a matchup nightmare having to guard her with someone slower because she’ll drive baseline, she’ll spin dribble, she’s become a very good free throw shooter and again, I congratulated her for graduating. I’m glad she’s gone and that’s a compliment. She’s an outstanding player.”
– Oklahoma State head coach Jim Littell
