DEWANNA BONNER SPEAKS
- On the situation in general: "I'm excited to go there. It's warm and it's an awesome city. I'm just happy to experience Diana Taurasi. I think that their system is great and I like to run, so I'm just really excited about that. I'm just excited and ready to get to Phoenix."
- On Phoenix's up-tempo style: "Oh yeah, I like the way they run. They've got a great point guard and shooting guard in Cappie (Pondexter) and Diana, and they're already a veteran team. I'm just ready to come in there and improve something."
