Locked on Women’s Basketball: Maddy Siegrist is Villanova’s indispensable player with a WNBA future
Howard and Maddy Siegrist chat about the many skills she brings to the table together at Mohegan Sun Arena — just ahead of her 32-point effort on national television last weekend
It’s time for another episode of the Locked on Women’s Basketball podcast. This episode features host Howard Megdal who is joined by Maddy Siegrist, Villanova’s indispensable player. The two talk about the many skills she brings to the table together at Mohegan Sun Arena, just ahead of her 32-point effort on national television last weekend against Iowa State. Siegrist has improved her already-deadly shooting this season, along with growth in everything from her defensive chops to her ability to navigate double teams.
Maddy Siegrist talks about the improvements in her shots:
“I mean, shooting has always been like something I’ve enjoyed working on. Sure, it’s always been like a constant, I’ll go to the gym, hop on the shooting gun. And you know, either different workouts. I really worked on shooting off the dribble and shooting contested because you can go and shoot a million shots and no one is guarding you. And it’s different. But I don’t usually have that luxury. Usually, someone’s on me and I am only open for a split-second to shoot.”

Maddy Siegrist talks about her interests in education and volunteering in student teaching:
“I’ve always had an interest in teaching. I think now that you know, I’m getting more to the end of my college career. I definitely want to continue to play at the next level. And then see what opportunities, whether that’s coaching, I think I want to stay around the game for a while. So just having an education degree is super helpful. I love going to the schools now and I loved volunteering last year. But I think trying to bring that into the sports world, or you can take everything you learned and apply it in sports.”
“So last year, I volunteered at a local grammar school. And then this year, for my masters, I’ve had to observe and now start student teaching in January.”
