Head Coach Wendy Schuller: "Carrie is about the same size as Courtney, but is a little bit physically bigger and stronger. She is raw and is working hard to improve her skills daily. We have seen some really positive play from her. She has tremendous natural ability and is a quick jumper. She is going to be a very good rebounder and shot blocker. We have to get her to find the rim a little bit quicker and when she does that she will improve her touch in the paint. She is someone who can grow into her role. It is going to be nice for her to be able to just take her time and get used to a demanding position. Both of our young post players have the chance to grow under the tutelage of two experienced players. I expect that Carrie and Courtney Nolen will be able to carry the torch for us in the paint and continue our tradition of all-conference level post players."
