“Obviously, her first step is great,” Ursuline coach Beth Wooters said. “Paulina has that little hesitation move and it just doesn’t matter if you have a good defender on her, she’s gone. She’s basically unstoppable one-on-one going to the basket. So how do you stop her? You go to a zone. She’s very deceiving, too, in that when you see her off the court she appears slight. But she doesn’t play that way.”
