“Sarah brings experience as a player with the knowledge of knowing the game that will help our team grow both on and off the court,” Loyd said. “I was really impressed with her understanding of the day to day operations, her drive to develop players and her personality that will help her quickly build strong relationships with players and recruits. I am very fortunate to have her and she has already jumped right into the position. “
