Flanery on Janning
“Marissa is someone that can help us on both ends. She’s got a chance to be the type of on-ball defender that we could use and offensively she is pretty talented. She can handle it, pass it and score the ball. Within that, she is not just a shooter, not just a driver, she can do both. The challenge for her will be decision making, as it is for most freshman point guards.”
