Collen on Neal
"Connie is one of a handful of players on our roster that will make or break our season. It's her final opportunity to earn a starting position at the off guard. If not, she has the opportunity to be the first guard off the bench. We simply need her to be a little more selective and a little more consistent from three-point range. If she could average two of five from the three-point line a game, she could help make us a Top 25 program."
