Big V: Ardossi new Altona ace - Feb 13, 2012

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Liam Twomey

Appearing in the Williamstown, Altona and Laverton Star.

WOMENS basketball in Altona is about to receive a facelift. No longer is the club prepared to lose talented players to high profile rivals from the states north and east.

The Gators are making changes to become a western suburbs powerhouse and the ball is already rolling with the signing of Australian basketball star Brigitte Ardossi (188-F-87, agency: Josep and Nicolas, college: Georgia Tech).

The 24-year-old began her career as a junior in Altona before being forced to leave in search of more challenging opportunities. She went on to play WNBL for the Canberra Capitals, WNBA for the Atlanta Dream and college basketball for Georgia Tech.

Now Ardossi will return to her former club for the coming season, eager to ensure future talented juniors are not forced to move around like she was.

I played for the Altona Gators when I was really young and they didnt really have a higher division team that I could progress to. That made me leave the club, Ardossi said.

It made me realise that the western suburbs doesnt really have a successful team in a high division that our girls can really aspire to play for. I feel like coming back and playing will bring the profile up. The next goal will be to bring this team up to Championship Division.

Ardossi also plans to educate some of the juniors at Altona about the opportunities basketball can lead to outside of Australia.

For me not having those avenues in the West, college just seemed like the only option. The only time I made a state team was in under 20s so I was under the radar and a late starter but I knew that was my goal, she said.

Ill be telling them about that because it is a great option. There is only one Victorian state team that girls in this area can make and the sad reality is not everyone can make the team but there are also other options.

Ardossis Altona teammates are already hard at work preparing for the new season in the hope of improving on their semi-final showing in last years Big V competition.

Assistant coach Elisha Hogan said the club was rapt to sign Ardossi and was hopeful it would lead to an improvement on last seasons semi final defeat.

The girls have been back into it now for a good month. We are at Altona beach every Monday doing fitness and we have recruited a couple of other girls as well. We are working hard and we are looking forward to getting started.

Abby Bishop claims Australian WNBL weekly honour - 1 hour ago
International Center Abby Bishop (189-C-88) put on an amazing game in the last round for Adelaide and that's her to receive a Player of the Week award for round 2. The 29-year old center had a double-double of 35 points and ten rebounds, while her team beat Perth (#8, 0-3), the league's bottom-ranked team 89-81. Adelaide maintains the 3rd position in Australian WNBL. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost that single game earlier this season. Adelaide wil...   [read more]

Marianna Tolo's double-double lands her Player of the Week award among Australians playing currently abroad: - 20 hours ago
We bring you last week's top performances from Australians who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level. This week's number one is an international center Marianna Tolo (196-89, agency: ProDep Management). She could not help Abdullah Gul (0-1) in their last game. Despite Tolo's very good performance the third-placed Abdullah Gul (0-1) was edged 76-74 on the road by the leading Istanbul Uni in the group E of Eurocup.    [read more]

WNBL Round 2 of Regular Season - 1 day ago
There were only 2 rounds played so far and it's still very beginning of the Regular Season in WNBL. Boomers smashed Bendigo Spirit in Melbourne 90-63. The game was mostly controlled by Boomers.

Boomers forced 21 Bendigo Spirit turnovers and outrebounded them 43-27 including 16 on the offensive glass. 25 p...   [read more]
