Adams on Bonner: "I believe she is a program-changer in how she plays and the tempo at which she plays.  I've never, in the past few years, seen anyone play on both sides of the ball and leave it out there every possession like she does.  In doing that in our system she could be the most decorated junior college player to leave Wichita State in two years.  She has phenomenal speed and leaping ability.  She is a fighter and has an edge."
