Ann Mullins
Coach Brandon Rosenthal says: [quote][quote]Ann is our leader on the team. There is no doubt as to what she wants. She wants to go to the NCAA Tournament. She has the opportunity to break the school and conference records for digs and she could do it in only three years. Ann is that difference maker. Ann is the heart of this team. She is the one that takes control on the court. She is the one that takes control in the locker room. Ultimately, Ann is the one who is going to drive this vehicle.[quote]
