Tough. Hard nosed. Emotional. Dedicated. These are just some of the words to describe Stephaine Crosley, who brings so much more to the Vikings than scoring and rebounding. The emotional leader of the team, Crosley has battled through injuries during her entire career, but continues to do all the little things that make the program succeed. One of the top rebounders in the league, Crosley has improved her offensive game, adding the three-point shot to her repertoire last season that will once again stretch the defenses this season.
