Coach Bento-Jackson on Cronk: "Chandice is one of the premier shooters in women's college basketball. From the time she stepped on campus here at Santa Clara, she has shown that she is willing and capable of taking and making big shots. Chandice is the kind of player that defenses have to account for at all times. With her ability to stretch the defense, we hope this will create scoring opportunities for others around her."
