Rayfield on Hilbrands: "After a great start in 2009, teams often resorted to physically solving Jordan's pace and ability by going one-vs-one. With other weapons around her, and a focus on our ability to score on restarts, we are going to put Jordan in a position to have the same kind of start in 2010 and to carry it right through to the end of the season."
