WBB: Julianna Prim

In this photo taken during practice for the State's women's basketball team and with her back to the camera is number 40, six-foot Julianna Prim. Prim is an intriguing member for the women's basketball team. Is it because she was a McDonald's All-American coming out of high school-no. Further, it's unknown whether she will either remain on the bench being only a practice player, be a significant substitute, or be a starter. What makes Julianna intriguing is that after a stellar career swimming for first Phieffer College and then N.C. State, she has become a member of State's women's basketball team.

While earning accolades as a swimmer in high school and college, she does have a basketball background. Prim was the MVP of her high school basketball team. Additionally, Prim was also a 2012 ACIS Basketball National Championships Women's IM All-American.
