Nia Holloway a Gopher!
Where do you see #45 nationally?
Chaska junior Mallory Heyer talked to KSTP Sports about her recent commitment to play for the Gophers women's basketball team. Before her junior season begins, she's already topped 1,000 career points.
Heyer is also a standout player for the Minnesota Fury AAU program, and dominates for Chaska's volleyball team.
She chose the Gophers over Utah, Iowa, Iowa State, and other high-major programs.
There are no current scholarships available for 2022 with the recent verbals of Mallory Heyer and Nia Holloway.I would love to get Braun to join this class. How many scholarships are available for 2022?
Here is a joint virtual interview with Mallory and Nia.
Thanks for posting this interview. This is one of the things I really enjoy about GH. Lol, Mike Peden needs to make his opening ? shorter and make your bed! Looking forward to watching both of them @ the U. Go Gophers !Here is a joint virtual interview with Mallory and Nia.
"I was going to wait a little longer to make a decision," Braun said in a phone interview. "But, with COVID-19 happening I wasn't able to visit some other schools. Ultimately it got down to knowing where I wanted to go. It was time to call coach [Whalen] and commit. I saw an opportunity to stay home and play in front of friends."
This is a trend. Whalen's 2021 class already includes Roseau guard Katie Borowicz and Watertown-Mayer guard Maggie Czinano. The 2022 class includes Minnesotans Holloway and Chaska star Mallory Heyer.
For a good indication of how well-regarded she is, consider Braun's final top-six list: Minnesota, Arizona State, Michigan, Oregon State, Maryland and Iowa.
"I told Lindsay that Mara was upstairs saying no to the 14th-, 15th- and 19-ranked teams in the country," Chris Braun said of a conversation with Whalen. "Coach Whalen is awesome. And the staff, they're good people. It's going to be great."
