“I am thrilled to have Molly join our Hawkeye family. Molly is a proven Division I guard with outstanding offensive skills and a hardnosed defensive mindset. She will provide us with needed depth at our point guard position, while also having the capability to play off guard because of her shooting range. In addition, Molly has a high basketball IQ with a team-first mindset. I am excited to work with her!”
