we begin, I just want to make sure you know how to spell my name. There is no
"e" in the middle of Cathrine. A lot of people get that wrong."
Q. Ok, got
it. I think I have to change it everywhere now. Thanks. So what strengths, qualities
or skills will you bring or add to a WNBA team?
"I'm mostly looking to
have fun and keep playing how I've playing over my entire career. I will try not
do too much or be something I'm not."
Q. What skills do you feel you
still need to improve or work on at the next level?
I need to work on my
overall strength. I am someone that plays inside, though I'm not the biggest post
player. I want to be able to guard on the perimierter, so I will work on continuing
to improve my lateral quickness."
Q. What do you expect to be some of
the biggest challenges at the next level?
"Strength. Everyone in the WNBA
is much stronger, faster and bigger."
Q. Are there any specific teams
you would like to play for?
"The WNBA was not really around when I was
a kid growing up as I'm an older senior - 24 - but I think it would be nice to
be at home. I am from Seattle and would love to stay home there, but I would love
to be drafted anywhere. I don't think people will be choosy."
Q. Is there
a current WNBA player you model your game after?
"In all honesty, I haven't
done my fair share of watching them as much. I watched some on TV, but not as
much as I should have."
Q. What will you remember most about your college
experience at Oregon?
"That I had a lot of fun in my time there and that
I worked really hard to get where I am. Hopefully that will push me to the next
level. I love playing basketball and took that with me. I never took it too seriously,
Q. Your team this year was full of talented seniors. What do
you think of Andrea Bills' chances in the Draft?
"She works really hard,
she's coachable and she will listen to what coaches say. She always wants to improve.
She is a smaller post player but can score one-on-one and really takes advantage
of those opportunities. She can put the ball in the hoop and get to foul line."
What WNBA player are you most looking forward to playing against or meeting?
being in the northwest, I've met Lauren Jackson before. She came to one of our
college games because we had an Australian player on our team and I was introduced
