Mitchell Says...

"Jennifer in my mind is the best pure point guard in the class of 2010. She's an unbelievable playmaker. Her ability to handle the basketball and get herself in position to score or set her teammates up to score is unmatched. She's a very good outside shooter which makes her extremely dangerous on the offensive end. What I like most about her is her leadership qualities and the leadership abilities she has exhibited in high school. That will benefit our team greatly. She is everything you would want in a point guard."
