Coach McGraw on Prohaska:
“Abby brings a tremendous amount of energy. She is a great team player because she is someone you can count on to take a charge, dive for loose balls and set the tone defensively. You like having her on the court because she does so many little things well. She can drive, she can pass, she can shoot, so she’s just an all-around talented player.”
