Broncos Add Mallory McGwire
May 3, 2018

BOISE, Idaho - Boise State women's basketball announced the addition of center Mallory McGwire (Reno, Nev./Reno HS/Oregon) via transfer Thursday. McGwire, who joins the Broncos after playing the last two seasons at Oregon, will have two seasons of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2018-19 campaign due to NCAA transfer rules.

"We are excited to have Mallory join our program," said Boise State head coach Gordy Presnell. "On the court, she is a terrific player who will fit in to what we do and hopefully help us get to another level. Off the court, she comes from a wonderful family and is a very high-character student-athlete whom everyone will enjoy being around and getting to know. She is a great addition to the Bronco Family."

Over two seasons at Oregon, the 6-foot-5 McGwire appeared in 75 games, making 43 starts. She averaged 6.1 points and 3.8 rebounds per game while blocking 66 shots and shooting 52.2 percent from the field. McGwire appeared in every single game the Ducks played during her two years in Eugene, being a key part of Oregon's consecutive runs to the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight (2017-18). This past season, McGwire made 19 starts as the Ducks went 33-5 and captured the Pac-12 double, winning the program's first Pac-12 Tournament crown and its first regular-season title since 2000.

A prep teammate of former Boise State forward Shalen Shaw at Reno High School, McGwire brings additional championship and postseason experience to a Boise State program that has appeared in three of the last four NCAA Tournaments, and itself captured the Mountain West double for the first time in school history in 2017-18. The Broncos, after posting an overall mark of 23-10 this past campaign, have won at least 20 games in three of the last four seasons (19 wins in 2015-16 being the lone exception), and averaged 21 wins a year over the past five.

McGwire brings a deep athletic pedigree to Boise State. Her father, Dan, was a first-round NFL draft pick and spent five years in the league, playing for the Seattle Seahawks (1991-94) and Miami Dolphins (1995). Her uncle, Mark, played 16 seasons in Major League Baseball with the Oakland Athletics (1986-97) and St. Louis Cardinals (1997-2001), and currently serves as the bench coach for the San Diego Padres. Mallory's older sister, Morgan, just completed her collegiate playing career at Santa Clara, where she was named All-WCC Honorable Mention this past season.
