Molea Thompson Signs to Play Hoops at Lourdes

Posted: Updated:
Lourdes University women’s basketball coach Karen McConnell has announced that Molea Thompson has signed a letter of intent to play for the Gray Wolves beginning with the 2014-2015 season.

Thompson, a 5-7 guard from Mansfield, Ohio, set the school record for assists at Madison High School.  She was a two-time Second Team All-Ohio Cardinal Conference selection for the Rams while also earning Second Team All-District 6 accolades.

“Molea is an excellent ball handler who will be a good trigger for the fast break,” McConnell stated.  “She loves to attack the basket and is always looking for her open teammate.  On the defensive end her aggressive play should frustrate opponents.  I am excited that Molea has chosen Lourdes University to further her academic and athletic career.”

A three-time OCC Coach’s Award selection as well, she was named the team’s Most Improved Player in both 2012 and 2014.  Thompson’s highest scoring output while with the Rams was 32 points.
