“She is such an athletic player and can play anywhere on the court, which makes her difficult to guard,” she said.

The win helped push the Knights to 4-1 this season, including 2-1 in the Prairie Conference. With only one loss the Knights are pleased with how the season has started.

“Going into Christmas break 4-1 is a pretty good place to be,” Hill said. “We have had some ups and downs but overall we are playing well.”
