IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — All-Mid-American Conference first-team pick Molly Davis of Central Michigan is transferring to Iowa, Hawkeyes coach Lisa Bluder announced Wednesday.

The 5-foot-7 guard from Midland, Michigan, was a three-year starter for the Chippewas and led the team last season with 18.6 points and 4.7 assists per game. She has scored at least 10 points in 67 games, including a career-high 33 points against Ohio in the 2021 MAC Tournament semifinals.

Davis will be a senior and have two seasons of eligibility because of the COVID-19 bonus year.

“I am thrilled to have Molly join our Hawkeye family,” Bluder said. “Molly is a proven Division I guard with outstanding offensive skills and a hard-nosed 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.”
