Coach Kreklow on Sun…
"We're also very excited to add Sun to our roster in 2018. Sun has had a fantastic career at Miami-Dade and has been a key fixture in their back to back national championships, helping them to an undefeated record this past season. She's a great all-around player, someone that I would call a 'glue type' player. Sun makes people around her better with her ball control, decision making and positive attitude. She has the ability and skill to play all six rotations and knows how to score with a variety of shots. Sun is definitely the type of player that will be able to come in and make a huge impact on our program right away. Like Brynn, Sun is a great person and a wonderful teammate and is going to be a great fit for our program!"
