Non payed dp.
Like Magbegor and several others...


Smith will have to put some descent numbers up over the next 2 years to get drafted.
Wallace will also have to impress this year for her to have any chance.

I see Snrs Edwards maybe coming home and playing for the lynx. Froling also playing in the wnbl.

Problem for thevAussies in college is they are always up against the American college grads, and they will take preference every time over non Americans.

Wallace will likely end up back in WNBL too many other guards ahead of her from America, Smith has an extra year , but again so many players for so few places

With a number of Under 19 World Championship and FIBA Oceania representatives among the players making their way to college for the first time in 2017, the level of Australian freshmen in the women's side of NCAA basketball is extremely high this season.

Our top 3 have all secured places in programs that have either challenged for a national title already, or are expected to in the very near future. The others have secured scholarships at solid programs where they will almost surely make an impact from the outset.

We run through the preseason Australian Top 5 incoming freshman women for the 2017-18 NCAA Division I season.

With all fifteen members of Pick and Roll's 2016/17 All-Australian teams returning to college this season, spots in this year’s preseason top 10 were incredibly hard to come by, with seven of the ten spots filled by players who were in the 2016/17 end-of-season top 10, even despite the recent news of a season-ending injury to 2016/17 Player of the Year, Alicia Froling.

Whilst it was a stacked collection of players last year, the return of Funda Nakkasoglu after sitting out a year following her transfer from Utah State to Florida makes for an exciting set of players to watch throughout the season that extends far beyond just the preseason top 10.

As always, the opening weekend of college basketball was incredibly hectic, with a number of Australians at the forefront for their teams, even if results may not always have gone their way. Eliza West registered a career high, whilst Olivia West became the first Utah State player since fellow Australian, and now Florida guard Funda Nakkasoglu, to drop 30 points in a single game.

Time for a long overdue update...

Although many teams took it easy on the court this week with final exams continuing across the country, there were still a number of outstanding performances from Australians in women's NCAA basketball.

It was another week of milestones for the Australian women in college basketball this week. Two upperclassmen notched career-high scoring efforts, whilst Kristy Wallace tallied her 1,000th point in college basketball, a just reward following an outstanding season taking on an increased scoring load in her senior year.

NCAA Women: Delaney and McKay hit career highs, Wallace blows past 1,000
