COACH GALLIMORE ON GIALAMAS
"Trish is a tough ball-winning defender. She will take some time to learn how to play within a system, but I think long term she's going to be a good player for us. She has a tremendous personality and is a great competitor, but I think there will be a certain adjustment period. Again it is one of those things that interests you in having such a big, new group. It is going to be interesting to see who rises to the top sooner than later and I think Trish is one of those kids that wants it badly enough that she could certainly be a contributor for us sooner than later."
