As Bishop Dwenger floated on the edge of a .500 record all of last season, their most solid constant was point guard Molly Ream, who was a strong leader by example pushing the pace for the Saints. With almost every player back for 2019-2020, Ream’s value has continued to grow.
Ream played over 27 minutes per game, while averaging a team high 9.7 points and 4.4 assists per game. Ream’s frantic pace dazzled against opposing defenses and when her teammates were equally fast on the break, she is able to throw solid lead passes for fast break baskets. While probably considered more of a true point guard than many other in the area because of her vision and fast break pass prowess, Ream is a tough scorer getting to the basket when other options have failed. She scored a season high 20 points on 10-of-20 shooting in November in a quality win over Northrop.
Ream flirted with a quadruple double against Wayne in January when she posted 12 points, 10 steals, six rebounds and six assists. She recorded less than three assists in a game just twice.
“Molly is probably our most experienced player and she led us in several categories last year including scoring,” says new Bishop Dwenger coach Steve Wiktorowski. “She is a very good all-around player who can play anywhere on the perimeter and she can also get to the rim. She will be one of the top guards in the area this year.”
