Left-hander averaged 11.5 points, 11.0 rebounds and 6.0 blocks. … More than capable post-up player who could finish with either hand around the basket.
6 blocks a game. I don't care if you are playing against teams with nobody taller than 6'0, to do that requires timing and athleticism.

Appears to be quality all around. Welcome to the women's program!
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

I believe Lorraine (Canisus transfer) had to sit out one calendar year or maybe it was until the end of fall semester, so she could play in the first game of intersession.

I realize that we haven't seen any of these women play 1 minute of DI ball, but it looks like a pretty solid class.
