Braintree's Molly Reagan commits to Liberty

Braintree High incoming senior forward/center Molly Reagan verbally committed to Liberty University today, the Wamps announced on their Twitter page.

The 6-foot-2 Reagan was a dangerous inside-out threat for the Wamps, manning the post while also demonstrating quality shooting from the wings. She was one of four Wamps named to ESPN Boston's All-State Team after averaging 10.8 points, eight rebounds and two blocks for the Wamps. She had a scattering of local and Ivy League interest before deciding on Liberty, including Boston College, UMass and Holy Cross.

"All of us who are a part of Braintree basketball are very happy for Molly. Liberty is a great fit for her," Braintree head coach Kristen McDonnell said. "It has an outstanding academic reputation and the basketball program is a staple at the top of its conference. Molly is the total package as a player and person; I know she's going to make a very positive impact there. She is a hard worker, an incredible teammate, and an absolute pleasure to coach. This is a well-deserved accomplishment."

Reagan is the second Braintree girls basketball player to make a commitment this week. On Sunday, point guard Ashley Russell, ESPN Boston's Miss Basketball for 2013-14, committed to Penn. Two other Braintree players, sisters Bridget and Brianna Herlihy, also hold multiple Division 1 offers.
