"The first thing that everyone knows about Claire is that she is a phenomenal shooter," Roberts commented. "She has incredible range and a fearless shooter's mentality. The exciting thing for us is that Claire is not just a shooter, she also has a tremendous basketball I.Q. and a great feel for the game. She can rebound, defend, and handle the ball. She is a consistent competitor and has played high school and club basketball at a very high level. Claire is a great fit for Pacific: she is an incredible student and was very highly recruited. We are absolutely fired up to get her."
