2005-06 Season
• Probably affected more by the Lady Bulldogs' loss of a quartet of post players than anyone else on the roster.
• Reported to campus expecting to play primarily on the wing this season but that changed when Rebecca Rowsey tore the ACL in her right knee just two days after pre-season workouts began (Aug. 28).
• Knew then she'd probably see a good bit of time at power forward - the position she eventually played last season - but her minutes inside grew even greater when the Lady Dogs also lost Ebony Felder, Reicina Russell and Angel Robinson for the year.
• Among SEC leaders, ranked No. 21 in scoring, No. 9 in minutes played and No. 10 in three-pointers per game.
• Rebounding quite nicely from a disappointing opener when she fouled out with 8:20 against Baylor to reach double digits in the next eight games.
• Reached double figures in the first halves of dates with TCU, UCLA, LMU and MTSU.
• Poured in a career-high 24 points while logging all 40 minutes of action at MTSU and followed that with a team-high 16 points versus Georgia Tech.
• Knocked down six three-pointers - one shy of the Lady Bulldog single-game record - in just 25 minutes of action in the SEC opener at Ole Miss before fouling out.

2004-05 Season
• Began at guard before settling in primarily at the `4' for the majority of conference and post-season play.
• Along with Tasha Humphrey, became the 17th and 18th Lady Dogs named to the coaches' Freshman All-SEC team during the last 18 years.
• Had impressive outings in two exhibition wins, averaging 13.5 points. Scored 16 points in just 22 minutes against the Miami Suns and followed that with 11 against EA Sports.
• Received her first career start at Georgia Tech, becoming the 56th freshman to do so for UGA during Andy Landers' 26 seasons in Athens.
• Perhaps best overall outing was against Auburn. Included in solid linescore she tied what was then her career-high with 28 MP and grabbed a career-best with eight boards.
• After reaching double-digits once in the first 16 games of the season did so thrice in her next four outings.
• Improved her career-high for minutes twice in three games with 33 at Tennessee and then 34 versus Kentucky at home.
• After playing `4' exclusively for a month, saw time at wing against South Carolina and hit four threes in the final 6:25 of the first half to help grow a five-point lead to 12.
• Scored all 11 of her points at Florida in the second half, including six unanswered in the first 2:05 of the period to give Georgia a lead it would never relinquish.
• Made quite a splash with 14 points against Ole Miss in the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament, her highest output against a league foe during the season.
• Injured her right wrist in practice on Saturday, March 12, and practiced on an extremely limited basis in the week leading up to the 2005 NCAA Tournament opener.
• Showed little if any ill effects from the sore wrist against Rice in the NCAA's first round, scoring seven in 20 minutes of court time.

High School
• Coached by Paula Jones at East Coweta High.
• A four-year starter at East Coweta who completed her career with 1,637 points and had her jersey retired.

• Named the South team's Most Valuable Player at the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association (GACA) All-Star game after scoring a game-high 18 points and also grabbing nine rebounds and rejecting three shots.
• Tabbed the 2004 Fayette County Player of the Year by the Newnan Times-Herald.

• Led East Coweta in scoring in 28 of 30 games during 2003-04, scoring 30 or more seven times.
• Poured in a school-record 38 points against Newnan on Dec. 3, 2003, and became East Coweta's all-time leading scorer midway through her senior season during a Jan. 10, 2004 victory over Lovejoy.
