"Danielle is a special player," added Assistant Head Coach Gregory Mercer. "She's a tremendous leader on this team and everything you want in a captain. Whether it's setting up her fellow teammates for success with assists, finishing shots, or helping back on defense to secure a steal, she's everywhere all the time. You couldn't ask for a more complete player."
