KARBOWSKI ON YANNIELLO:"Michelle played valuable minutes in every game as a freshman. She has a great work rate and high fitness level to go along with her ability to get behind defenders with her pace or on the dribble. Michelle had a great spring season and improved a few aspects of her game that will increase her role entering her 2nd season."
