DIXON ON BONEY: "I expect Candynce to play towards the top of our lineup. Candynce has an all-around game; she is an excellent athlete. Candynce's strengths are her movement, her athletic ability, and her ability to play more than one style. She is extremely competitive and will fight to the bitter end. I've never seen her give up on a ball or a match. She's got potential to be one of the better players in the Atlantic 10 Conference."
