Yes it's a vehicle to take shots at Gopher football and basketball; but it's also about Wilhite.

Wilhite had joined a team in 2013 that had seniors Tori Dixon and Ashley Wittman and sophomore Daly Santana. She also was arriving with the Tapp twins, Hannah and Paige. That was a lot of depth.

"We had a great team in '13," Wilhite said. "I got to play some, but I had to get much better to be a player that my teammates could count on. I had to change everything — get stronger and faster, develop a variety of shots."

She smiled and said: "I came here with one shot — hammer it across the court. That doesn't work in the Big Ten. You have to read the defense. A change of pace is important."
