Jackson did have some prior experience to make the transition earlier. "It wasn't really that hard, I played inside a lot in high school, so I kind of had a little experience there," said Jackson. That's not to say that the changes been insignificant. "I think it is different because I am so short and I play against a lot of taller people, but it's just something you got to work at," said Jackson. She knows exactly what she must do to make up for her height difference. "Positioning, blocking out, and just a lot of effort. You've got to put a lot of effort into out quicking them," said Jackson.
Jackson's focus right now is on the upcoming game with the Baylor. "We have to play well against Baylor tomorrow. We know they're going to come in here and try to beat us. They have a lot of momentum coming off of the Texas game," said Jackson. The post players will certainly face a tough challenge trying to defend the Baylor offense. "Their two leading scorers are both their four and their five players, so it's going to take a collective effort just to stop them and block them out," said Jackson. Baylor typically brings a physical game, just like Casey likes. "I like physical games, but sometimes they can kind of wear and tear on your body," said Jackson. "In the Big Twelve everybody is going to play physical, so you kind of expect that.
