Collen on Huggins
"I thought that Jess did a great job for us last season. Many people may not realize it but she ranked in the top five of the conference in assist-to-turnover ratio. Believe she went through a transformation from a walk-on, to a role player and then to a starting point guard in a short period of time. This will be her first season where she understands what we expect from her. I am confident that she will have a great season."
