Molzen Signs Contract to Play Overseas
July 2, 2009
PULLMAN - Former Washington State University women's basketball player Heather Molzen has signed a contract to play with Lemvig Basket, a basketball team in Denmark's Dameligaen League, the highest level of competition in Denmark.
'We are proud of Heather's numerous accomplishments at WSU, both athletically as well as academically,' Cougar Head Coach June Daugherty said. 'The opportunity to play basketball overseas is a credit to her talent and hard work.'
Molzen, originally from Lakeside, Calif., was a four-year letterwinner with the Cougars, appearing in each of the team's 60 games over her last two seasons. She combined to make 56 starts her junior and senior years, and became the first player in school history to start 30 games in a season in 2007-08.
Molzen led the team in both rebounding average (6.0 per game) and total rebounds (179) as a senior, ranking 11th in the Pacific-10 Conference in the former. As a junior Molzen led the Cougars in total rebounds (128; 4.3 per game), and finished second on the team in scoring (203 points; 6.8 per game).
Lemvig Basket, located in Lemvig, Denmark, recently completed its first season in the Dameligaen, missing the playoffs in its debut season by only one game.
'We signed Heather Molzen for the coming season because we want to make our team stronger on the inside, and at the same time keep the flexibility,' Lemvig Basket Chairman Rene Jakobsen said. 'She is a perfect match, being able to fill in at different positions. We also feel that Heather will be a great role model for our younger players.'
Lemvig begins its preseason in August, and will play its regular season from September through April.
