Deaton on Hellmann: "She is a real solid player on the floor and she has a great passing technique. She has come into her own defensively. The tough part about Megan is we try to get her out of comfort zone but as far as her passing and serve-receive, that's just one girl you don't serve the ball to. She passes nails."
