Stefanie Pemper Says: “Jade enters this season incredibly fit and ready to withstand the rigors of being every opponents’ focal point. Certainly we’ll diversify our attack on the offensive end and not go to her every time down the floor, but no matter what we do she’ll play a part even if it’s as a decoy. Jade is skilled at scoring, passing, handling the ball, setting good screens, rebounding, hitting free throws, executing the game plan and playing tough defense. Her ‘cherry on top’ is being able to hit 16-footers consistently and she’s getting there. I love her efforts to make her teammates better this year with her leadership.”
