Danica had a phenomenal high school career and we anticipate that her success will continue through her time as a Swede. Any time that you can sign a player who scored 1,200+ points in high school, it's obviously a great addition to your roster. However, I am more excited about the fact that Danica loves to compete and loves to be in the gym playing basketball.
