Senior guard Sydney Crafton said of her teammates, "we've got shooters. We've got jump shooters - you know like LP, she's a pop-stop - and we've got people that can take it to the basket, then you've got our post players.. it's like an all-around team. We've got every kind of scorer that you need."
