Of Szabo, Green said, she’s “positive every day. Always comes in with a smile. Comes into my office every day. If I don’t see her, I’m like what’s going on. I have an opportunity right now for this semester ... I have a scholarship.”

Szabo has appeared in 12 games, averaging 6.4 minutes and 1.9 points per game.

The Flyers (15-4, 8-0) won 66-59 at Richmond on Wednesday. They take a nine-game winning streak into a 2 p.m. game Saturday at Davidson.
