IOWA — Former Univeristy of Iowa guard Molly Davis announced she would join the Univeristy of Edwardsville women’s basketball team as a graduate assistant heading into the 2024-25 season.

“I have had the pleasure of watching Molly play basketball since she was a freshman in high school,” head coach Robyn Scherr-Wells said in a press release. “The thing that has always stood out to me about Molly is the joy that she plays with. Molly loves the game. When her coaches at Iowa reached out to me about Molly’s interest in our graduate assistant position, I knew right away she would be a great fit. She has a high basketball IQ and is a hard worker.”

Davis joins the Purple Aces following back-to-back NCAA Championship game appearances alongside WNBA rookies Caitlin Clark and Kate Martin. 

In her five years of NCAA play, Davis played at Central Michigan Univeristy for three seasons before transferring to Iowa. Over her career, Davis recorded 1,765 points, 502 assists, 473 rebounds and 161 steals.

In her final year with Iowa, Davis started in 27 of 31 games where she averaged 5.9 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists. 

Davis quickly became a fan favorite as the Hawkeyes soared in popularity. She became known for her signature headband worn during play.

After injuring her ankle in a play against Ohio State March 3, Davis sat out for the remainder of the season before Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder brought her in for the final 20 seconds of her collegiate career in the loss against the Univeristy of South Carolina where she was met with cheers from the crowd.

“Molly is a winner and has been a part of many successful teams,” Scherr-Wells said. “She will be a tremendous asset to our players in helping them understand all of the things that go into building a championship program. She has a bright future in coaching and I am excited for the opportunity to mentor her in her first coaching role!”
