“I didn't try to change my shot (to avoid getting blocked),” Young said. “I just relaxed and shot the ball.”

With freshmen center Vicky McIntyre missing the game due to illness, Young recognized her team would need a big game. She came through with one of the best games of her college career.

“She's more athletic than anybody I know,” Garrison said. “I don't think she understands the talent she has. I see it, and everybody else sees it, but she's not the one to say she's a good player.”

In the final games of her sophomore season, Young has recognized how much her team needs her.

“At the beginning, I could show up here and there and we would still do (well),” she said. “Now, if I'm having a horrible game, they're there to say they still need me.”
