2019 WNWBL SEASON PREVIEW: SYDNEY METRO BLUES

Last Year: 9 wins, 6 losses – 3rd

Roster: Ashlea Pellow, Jessica Cronje, Maryanne Latu, Georgia Munro-Cook, Kylie Gauci, Jessica Pellow, Daniela Egelbast, Victoria Simpson, Counrtney Ryan.

Fixture: The Blues open their season against the Perth Wheelcats in the WNWBL’s opening game. In making the cross-country trip to the Bendat Basketball Centre, the Blues will face the Lady Heelers and Queensland Comets to close-out Round One. Round Two marks a short road trip for the Blues, as they travel down the road to the Flames home at the Sydney University Sport and Aquatic Centre. The Blues will then host WNWBL action in Round Three at Auburn Basketball Centre with a cluster round set to take place at their home stadium.

Overview: The Blues lost to local rivals the Flames in last year’s Bronze Medal game, and will be hungry to enter the top three in 2019. The Blues will bring back a largely unchanged team with Kris Riley becoming the team manager, while two new players enter the fold in Daniela Egelbast and Victoria Simpson.

One to Watch: Georgia Munro-Cook led the team in scoring in 2018 with 17.7 points per game. 2018 was a career-best year for Munro-Cook, averaging a career-high in scoring and rebounding. Keep an eye out for Munro-Cook to try and lead the Auburn Hills based Blues to a top-three finish in 2019.
