Quoting Russ Rose
"Kimi is a welcome addition to this year's team. I like her quickness, her fast release and how competitive she is. In looking to fill our opening at setter, I always came back to the fact that I loved the way she competed. I know that in talking with her previous coach, he kept highlighting the same thing: that she plays like a guy. I think that's a positive thing."
"To develop as a top setter and to help on and off the court to win another national championship."
