A versatile, athletic and strong combo guard with strong ball-handling skills and an attacking mentality that makes her a constant scoring threat. Grant is capable of creating scoring opportunities for herself as well as finding an open teammate when the opportunity presents itself.
Joe Tartamella on Grant:
"D has made unbelievable strides within our program, especially as a leader and this will be her first full year of college basketball. As shown last year when D was inserted into our lineup, our level of play immediately rose. She has put herself in a position to be a top guard, not only in the conference, but in the country. I expect her rare ability to blend power and finesse to impact our team throughout the year."
