Very solid start by the aussies in the WNBA this season.
Yesterday Bec Allen had an excellent game for NY, playing 19 min off the bench for 6 pts (3/6), 3 reb & 3 steals. Her first basket was an encouraging drive to the hoop after beating a defender off the dribble on the perimeter. She got a little excited and forced a couple of ill advised 3's but overall looked good, not overawed, and played some very nice defence.
She played again today. I didn't watch this one - a road loss to the Mystics - but she went 0/4 in 14 min but did get 6 boards & 2 blocked shots.
Cayla played well in Phoenix's win over the Stars. 17 min off the bench, including being on the floor down the stretch of a close game, so Sandy already putting faith in her from day 1. 10 points on 5/7 shooting - both misses being 3 point attempts. 3 rebs & 2 steals. Her D was patchy but not too bad.
Tess didn't make it onto the court, and is going to struggle to do so this season with so many guards on that roster.
Today we had 4 aussies starting in the one game as LA played in Seattle ... and got smashed. O'Hea 8, 3 & 3) & Bishop (2, 3 & 3) were both solid; Erin (11, 2 & 5 + 2 stl) played well in a losing cause. Marianna (3 & 3) struggled a little. Hung around the perimeter a lot of offence and even attempted a 3 at one point, which was odd. Didn't look too comfortable out there. Hopefully she'll be fine once she adjusts to the tempo of this league though.
