Coach Lee Ann Riley is very pleased with the fact that Cormier can create her shot and score in the clutch when it's needed.

"I have been very blessed for over three and half years to have a player take over a game you don't have to run sets for her because it's very rare that a female can create their own shot and she can she plays a guys game off the dribble in the air finishes around the basket extremely well it's just her natural talent, Riley said."

Basketball has always been Cormier's game never swaying always focused on hoops.
