Locked On Women’s Basketball: Maddy Siegrist talks Athletes Unlimited, Dallas Wings, Villanova
Siegrist: Wings are 'going to build on the success we've had in the past'
Howard Megdal welcomes Dallas Wings forward Maddy Siegrist back to Locked On Women’s Basketball to discuss everything she’s involved in these days! Siegrist touches on her work with Villanova on the coaching and program development side, the moves the Dallas Wings are making in free agency, and what she’s looking forward to in the upcoming Athletes Unlimited season.
Siegrist explains what she’s learned from seeing her college program from the perspective of a staff member:
“As a player, you’re worried about practice, getting better [and] games. That’s really it. You don’t have to think about anything else. You don’t think about food orders; you don’t think about, are the lights gonna be on in the gym? … Seeing everybody else’s role is cool, and being able to be an ambassador to the program with donors. And we’ve been generating so much support and buzz on campus, so just to be a part of that. And then kind of the coaching aspect: A lot of these players I’ve played with, and now you could share your knowledge in a different way, which is really, really cool.”
