Hein, who also considered Slippery Rock (PA), Black Hills State (SD), & UW-Eau Claire, says the UMBC coaching staff thinks she can make the transition from the high school to the college game.
"They like how I can shoot a lot," Hein says, "and things to improve on, probably my speed and agility and my strength, and stuff, because it's a whole different game in college."
