Wayne Kreklow on Lydia
"Lydia has the potential to be a dominant front-row player for us. At 6-6, she has great size and will only get better as she matures and has the opportunity to train on a daily basis. She moves well and has a great arm. Lydia is very competitive and has the drive and determination that she needs to really blossom as a player. We expect that before Lydia finishes at Mizzou, she will become one of the most imposing front court players to wear Black and Gold."
