Same goal, different paths for Arnold and Johnson


NAPERVILLE, Ill. -- They are two players headed for a similar destination who both began in the state of Illinois but have plotted different courses as to where they want to be. Samantha Arnold is a 6-foot-4 sharpshooter who wants to become more of a force inside. Michala Johnson is a 6-3 whirling dervish in the paint who wants to develop more perimeter firepower.

If you added the two together, you'd come up with what each wants to become -- a multidimensional offensive terror at a size that doesn't often see so many dimensions.
