COMMIT: Class of ’19 guard commits to ISU women’s hoops

Last night while two teams were wrapping up trips to the Final Four, the Iowa State women’s basketball team was building for the future. The Cyclones picked up a commitment from class of 2019 in-state guard Maggie McGraw, according to a source.

The Indianola, Iowa product averaged 13.7 points per game, second on the team, while shooting 52 percent from the floor and 47 percent from behind the 3-point arc during her freshman campaign with the Indians. She was also second on the team in assists and steals for a squad that won 22 games and lost in the state quarterfinals.

The 5-foot-11-inch combo guard had also received a scholarship offer from Drake. She will play her first game for the Cyclones during the 2019-20 season.
