This edition of Five Questions is with Molly Garber, who just committed to Wisconsin-Stout following her club season with Minnesota Metro Stars 2023 Wiese. Molly will be a Senior this season at Blaine High School (MN). Thanks for your time Molly!

 

1) First, congratulations on your recent verbal! What were some of the main factors in your decision to commit to UW-Stout?
 

Some of the main factors for me was having my major and the overall feel of the program and coaches. 

 
2) You played this club season with Minnesota Metro Stars 2023 Wiese, one of the most unselfish teams I saw this year. What were some of your favorite moments, either on or off the court, and what seemed to make the team so close?
 
I loved playing with all the girls this year. Some of my favorite moments were just playing together. We also went go karting together, which was fun. 
 
 
3) I think your High School team, Blaine, caught some people off-guard a bit last year and ended up with an impressive 18 win campaign. As the leading scorer from last year as well, what are some of your individual and team goals for the 2022-23 season?

 

An individual goal for myself is rebounding more. As a team we are not very tall, but we have speed. A goal for us is to run the floor and  getting the ball up quicker as well as, playing tough defense like last year.

 

 
4) Like a lot of players I've gotten to interview, you are a multi-sport athlete, competing in tennis as well. How do you feel being a multi-sport player benefits you, and do you ever have any time crunches or does the fact that tennis is a fall sport work out pretty well in that regard?
 
Being a tennis and basketball player has been great for me. Tennis helps my foot work and foot speed, which plays into basketball. Our tennis season is shorter compared to other fall sports so I have a nice break between them. The summers however, are very busy and I am often on the move. 
 
 
5) What advice would you give to younger players who are either in the early stages of recruiting or will be starting the process soon?
 

Be yourself. Don’t be afraid to reach out, you never know what might happen.
