  3. Flames re-sign Cox for 2014/15 WNBL season

The Brydens Sydney Uni Flames have re-signed former WNBL MVP and Australian Opals player Rohanee Cox for the 2014/15 Wattle Valley WNBL season.

Cox is the third player to commit her future to the club after the Flames recently re-signed 269-game WNBL veteran Lauren King and boom youngster Tahlia Tupaea.

Cox has played 266 games in the WNBL, including 23 games for the Flames in season 2013/14 –where she excelled. The 2008 Beijing Olympic Games silver medallist contributed all over the court, averaging 13.7 points per game, 6.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists.  

It was this form that led her to being jointly named last season’s Brydens Sydney Uni Flames MVP alongside Katie-Rae Ebzery.

“I’m very happy to be back on board with the Flames and I’m already looking forward to playing again with girls next season,” said Cox.

“Karen (Dalton) who has always been there to help and support me, so it’s great to know that I’m going to continue to work with her.”

Flames Head Coach, Karen Dalton was pleased to re-sign one of the teams and leagues premier players of last season.

“Rohanee was an integral part of the team last season,” said Dalton.

 “She is incredibly versatile. Rohanee plays in different positions and can defend against different types of players. She also brings great energy to the team.”
