Bootleg Video: Kristen Newlin

We knew so little about her coming out of Riverton, Wyoming two years ago, but big Kristen Newlin made an immediate impression as a shot blocker for the Cardinal. Now a junior, the 6'5" forward/center is becoming a complete player. Newlin sat down with us yesterday to talk about her evolution, plus what we should expect from her and Stanford in Maples Pavilion this winter.
