Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness caught up with Katie-Rae Ebzery last month and she chatted to us about balancing the demands of professional basketball and studying a Bachelor of Education (Sec: HMHE) at The University of Sydney under the SUSF Elite Athlete Program.
Katie has been playing in the Women’s National Basketball League (WNBL) since 2010. In 2011 Katie competed in the Emerging Opals team at the World University Games (WUG) where she won a bronze medal. She also competed in the 2012 FIBA 3×3 Women’s World Championship, winning bronze.
In late 2013 she was selected to take part in the 21-player Jayco Australian Opals training camp, and narrowly missed out on the final cut. This year, Katie is gearing up for the 2014/15 WNBL season with the Brydens Sydney Uni Flames and is looking forward to getting back on the court to be in finals contention.
