When the game is on the line or the game is tight, she's a person who will step up and not be afraid to score or make something happen. It's something you can't teach. It's an innate thing, and she definitely possesses that.
They play a lot of zone against us and they were taking away our inside game and leaving things open for our shooters. Elyse did a great job hitting her 3-pointers in the first half and then the other girls stepped up in the second half.
We were lacking an ability to get in the flow on offense a little bit and on defense we were better in the second half. I think coaches look for perfection and it was nice to win by such a margin, but I still think we have a lot to work on.
We had heard about her in high school, but we weren't in a situation where we needed a post player at that time. Then we had a couple graduate, a couple get hurt, and we needed to find a CC post player.
