A jewel of a point guard with a gem of a name will run the offense for ARIZONA STATE: freshman Dymond Simon. "I'm as high as I can be on her," says coach Charli Turner Thorne. "I don't know who can stay in front of her." The 5'3" Simon will see lots of playing time in a three-guard system that includes senior Jill Noe, junior Reagan Pariseau and sophomore Briann January. Forward Emily Westerberg (10.8 points per game) is one of the best players in the Pac-10, but the team's fortunes could hinge on 6'6" sophomore center Kirsten Thompson emerging as a force in the post. "If Kirsten can provide what we hope she can provide," says Turner Thorne, "good luck playing us."
