◊ Freshman who displayed a keen penchant to contribute when the team was short-handed and needed her most...i.e. double-double versus Appalachian State and 18 points at Alabama.
◊ Hindered by a posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury in her left knee from the pre-season throughout her initial campaign in Athens. The setback greatly decreased her ability to practice and also cut her potential playing time on occasion.
◊ Posted a trio of double-digit scoring efforts and a pair of double-figure rebounding tallies during her initial campaign in Athens.
◊ Took care of a trio of career milestones against College of Charleston, notching her first double-digit performances for points and rebounds...and therefore her first double-double as well.
◊ Logged her first career start against Northeastern...one of 69 Lady Bulldog freshmen to start under Andy Landers during his 33 seasons in Athens.
◊ Recorded her second double-double of the season with 22 points and 13 rebounds against Appalachian State...at that point, her 10 FGs made and 13 boards were single-game highs for the Lady Bulldogs.
◊ Had nine points and eight rebounds in the first half alone against the Mountaineers.
◊ Perfect from the field and impressively grabbed a pair of vital defensive rebounds in the final 84 seconds against Florida in Athens.
◊ Aggravated her PCL injury at Mississippi State. Dressed out but did not play versus Kentucky or Ole Miss.
◊ Returned to action at Vanderbilt and was a bright spot with five points and three boards in 14 minutes of PT.
◊ Named SEC Freshman of the Week on Feb. 6, largely due to her game-high tallies of 18 points and nine rebounds at Alabama the previous day.
◊ All told, nine different Georgia freshmen - including teammates Erika Ford, Jasmine Hassell, Jasmine James and Khaalidah Miller - have combined to earn SEC Freshman of the Week honors 20 times since the award's inception in 2006.
◊ Turned a solid linescore against Marist in the NCAA Tournament - 8 points (on 3-of-4 FG and 1-of-2 FT shooting) and a team-high nine boards in a season-most 27 minutes of playing time.
◊ Coached by Victor Gilstrap at Lake High School.
◊ Versatile athlete who played all five positions at times during her prep career.

◊ As a junior, averaged 19.1 points, 11.7 rebounds and 1.7 steals.
◊ Named the ESPN Rise Regional Player of the Week for the Southeast on Feb. 17, 2010 as a junior after scoring a career-high 37 points in an upset of Newton, which entered the game with a 25-2 record.
◊ Said Lake High head coach Victor Gilstrap: "Any player of Krista's level has God-given talent, but what takes her above others and has made her the best player in the state is her tremendous work ethic. She's put in the time to develop her skills, not only the talents she's been blessed with but the cerebral parts of the game. She's also a very unselfish player. Krista is not only the most outstanding player I've had in my 10 years of coaching, she's also the most unselfish."
◊ Born January 10, 1993, Krista is the daughter of Angelia Donald.
◊ Major: Criminal Justice.
