COACH SPEAK (HC KRISTA GERLICH):
“Ashley is an exciting sign for us and will bring a tenacity to our team both offensively and defensively. She is a great on-ball defender that will cause havoc in the back court by making the tough plays like taking charges and applying resistance on the ball. Ashley has good speed and can get down hill to distribute the basketball. She can shoot the 3-ball and has a high basketball IQ. Our fans will love to watch Ashley play because she never takes a possession off, competes at a high level and will be a great floor leader. She also has experience in the Big 12 and understands the grind of conference play. It’s a good day for Lady Raider basketball with the addition of Ashley Chevalier.”
