Interesting story:

The problem was Gonzaga didn’t have the same interest in her. Vandersloot attended the school’s camp one summer, and coach Kelly Graves paid little attention to her.

When the camp was over and Graves was giving Vandersloot her evaluation, he told her she needed to become a better passer.

‘‘My assistant looks at me and goes, ‘What did you just say?’ ” Graves said. “ ‘She’s a great passer, and she always has been.’ But I saw she was getting 20 points a game in high school, and I figured she was a scoring point guard. I had no idea. Fortunately we didn’t lose her for the stupid thing I said.’’
