#24 Laura Crittendon
Laura is another one of the West Tennessee players who has been well-coached, used to winning, and loves the team. She is intelligent and is a great three point shooter. I love coaching a player like Laura who loves her teammates and expects her very best. Laura is always ready to give our team what we need.
