Heat’s big signings

The Mildura Heat Division 1 women are going big this Big V Basketball season.

Coach James Madigan confirmed the imminent signing of West Virginia University tall Kristina King, with the 6’3” American having been sent a contract and expected to arrive from Poland – where she is currently playing – in the next couple of weeks.

“We’re just waiting for it to be finalised and sent back,” Madigan said.

“This is the first time I’ve coached a genuine big in the women’s so obviously we are going to adjust what we do to suit the squad we’ve got.

“This girl is pretty athletic though, a big gangly bit she’s very athletic… she can run the floor well which suits our game as well.”

Unfortunately, 2018 import Alexis Gassion, currently playing in Cyprus, won’t be returning to the side she helped to the finals last season.

“She was our first choice (import) but her European commitments look like they are going to go through until May now,” Madigan said.
