    What They’re Saying about Emma Hjordisardottir
    “Emma is a well-balanced, offensively skilled player who excels in passing and three-point shooting. Her high level of international competition and experience will raise the competitive level of our team as we go into Conference USA. Her basketball IQ and seasoned international experience will have an immediate impact. Emma’s passion for Liberty and the game is welcomed into our conference transition.”
    Carey Green, Liberty Women’s Basketball Head Coach

    “First of all, I would like to congratulate both Elisabeth and Emma for choosing Liberty University to study and play basketball for the next four years. Despite their young age, they both play a key role on our team, but we play in the top league in Iceland and have been one of the most successful teams in the last 20 years. They are undoubtedly the most promising players in the country and have the right mentality to reach as far as they want. They have played with Iceland’s junior national teams in recent years and have been key players there, and Elisabeth has also been part of Iceland’s senior national team. We will definitely miss them, but at the same time we are proud that our players are wanted by a good school and team like the Liberty Flames, where they will develop as players for the next few years.”
