**Preseason Atlantic 10 All-Conference Team**
Coach Rudy On Walker: "Had a typical Walkeresque. junior year, which means very steady, doesn't do very much wrong, gets almost everything right, gets all the balls she should get and rarely makes errors ... She had knee surgery over the winter and really came on after that in her second game when she got used to playing in the knee brace and then got used to playing without it. ... She will be a fifth-year senior and we're depending on her to have another really solid year."
