One of the key variables for the Mounties in the upcoming playoffs will be how freshman Bianca Fede handles the added pressure. Fede is fourth on the team in total scoring and has slowly increased her presence on the court.
"Bianca's continued to grow up and get better," Palek said. "She's practicing better and she's realized what it takes to be a successful varsity player. She's become an integral part of the team and has the chance to be a really good player by the time she's done here. She had a great mentality. She just plays."
