April 30, 2013
"Demetria has the mindset and court vision that you want a true point guard to have. You want your point guard to have the ability to distribute the ball to make everyone else better, and she does that very well. The other dimension she brings is she can also score. She's not just one-dimensional and a pass-first point guard, but she's a true scoring threat. She's also a very good athlete, where we can play at the tempo we like."

"Alexia's game is exactly what we wanted as a staff because she is very versatile and can play multiple positions. She's also an incredible athlete, and we always want to go after kids that are extremely athletic. Right now, Alexia is more of a slasher scorer with the ability to score off the bounce and will be able to take her perimeter shooting to the next level with us."
