That’s just how Melson plays the game for the Ole Miss women’s basketball team: It’s all or nothing and she’s never been one to shy away from contact if it meant making a play.
It’s that type of hustle that has made her a natural leader.

And with that expanded role comes more responsibility that head coach Renee Ladner believes is more than deserved. (October 20, 2010, Page 8)

That may have played a factor in Gooch’s breakout performance on Friday that earned him his second EAGLE Player of the Week honor.
