The team's only returning upperclassman ... third-year squad member who is one of the Aztecs' leaders on and off the court ... first on the team in career games played with 77, including 51 starts ... a physical, hard-working player in the post ... will look to play an even bigger role on the offensive side this season after already proving her value as one of SDSU's best defenders as a junior ... the Mountain West Conference's top returning shot blocker and is tied for sixth (76 blocks) in the Aztec career record books.

As A Junior (2002-03): Posted career highs in almost every category as one of just three Aztecs to play and start in all 27 games ... averaged a career best 7.5 points and 6.0 rebounds per game ... reached double-figures in scoring seven times and in rebounding three times ... led the team in blocks with 45, almost tripling her previous season best of 16 ... had four blocks in a game five times ... second in the Mountain West in blocks per game (1.67), seventh in offensive boards (2.22/g) and eighth in rebounding (6.0/g) ... started her junior campaign with 10 points versus Centenary, reaching double-figures in scoring for the first time since her freshman campaign ... had a career night in a win over American, posting her first career double-double with 11 points and 13 rebounds (career-high) ... had four steals and three blocked shots, playing all 40 minutes for the first time in her career (previous high 33 minutes as a freshman) versus the Eagles ... had the game-tying lay-up with 25 seconds left against Creighton to send the game to overtime ... reached double-figures in rebounding for the second consecutive game versus the Bluejays ... season-high 15 points at Portland State ... best all-around game of the season in only 29 minutes versus Air Force on Feb. 27 with 11 points, eight rebounds, five assists, four blocks and four steals ... led the team in rebounding (12), assists (6), blocks (2) and steals (3) against New Mexico on March 1 ... six assists is a career best.

As A Sophomore (2001-2002)
Missed the first eight weeks of the season with a severe ankle sprain ... played in all 22 games after returning to the lineup, including 11 starts... averaging 3.5 points and 3.1 rebounds ... 10th in the Mountain West in blocked shots with a 0.68 mark ... hit the game winner with just 13 seconds to play to lift SDSU past UMKC ... had a season-high nine points in regular-season finale against BYU ... scored seven points versus Radford ... finished with six points at UMKC, Creighton and Wyoming ... also hauled down a career-high eight rebounds versus the Bluejays ... collected six rebounds at BYU ... best conference outing versus UNLV, scoring seven points and grabbing six boards ... had five boards and a career-high four blocks versus Wyoming ... six points and four rebounds against Colorado State ... solid in start at Air Force, scoring seven points and grabbing a pair of steals ... tied a career best with three steals at New Mexico ... four points, four rebounds, two assists and three steals in the season finale versus the Lobos.

As A Freshman (2000-2001)
Saw action in all 28 games, including 13 starts ... in the Aztecs' starting lineup for the final four games of the season ... scored in double figures six times ... led SDSU in field-goal percentage during the regular season, shooting at a 52-percent clip in the first 27 games ... that figure would have ranked third in the Mountain West with enough field goals to qualify ... averaged 5.8 points and 3.6 rebounds ... opened season with three straight games in double figures, including 11 points versus both Montana and Illinois State ... scored a career-high 17 points to lead SDSU against Alcorn State at the Lady Tiger Classic ... came back with 14 versus Missouri the following night in the final ... recorded a season-high six boards on five occasions (LMU, Chattanooga, Alcorn State, Wyoming and New Mexico) ... rebound total against Chattanooga was a team-high ... also had two blocks versus the Lady Mocs ... finished with 11 points versus Northern Arizona ... had best conference outings versus Colorado State, twice scoring seven points, including a 3-for-3 shooting performance against the Rams at home ... perfect from the floor versus Air Force at home.

High School
Attended John Hersey High School in Chicago ... an all-Illinois honoree as a senior ... selected all-area as both a junior and senior ... also a three-time all-Suburban League choice as well as the conference's player of the year in both 1999 and 2000 ... averaged 17.3 points, 13.3 rebounds and 6.0 blocks as a senior and 15.8 points, 11.1 rebounds and 6.0 blocks as a junior ... set the Illinois state record for blocked shots in a season with 177... set six school records, including career rebounds (1,133) and career blocks (476) ... recorded best game against Chicago city power Whitney Young High School, posting a quadruple-double with 18 points, 18 rebounds, 12 blocks and 10 assists.
