Rushing on Dubenion: "Mignon is a small and quiet middle with a big and potent game. She has a good jump and is quick. She is a smart player who sees the block and turns the ball past it. She is tough to stop and we are looking for her to step up even more this season in order to help us win a Conference USA championship."
