Tagliente on Allie Sabia: "Allie is a true competitor. Her athleticism, determination, and ability to read and understand the game are what make her special. Allie is coming to us already with a solid foundation, and with her work ethic, she has the potential to develop into an impact player in the NCAA. She has outstanding possession and passing skills and I expect to see her up front and in the midfield this year for UMass."
