Cyclones gain elite basketball player
By RACHAEL BORICH
AMERICA'S elite women's bas- ketball competition the WNBA will hit Rockhampton's Hegvold Stadi- um court this season.
Signing-up for the Rockhampton Cyclones women's team is New York Liberty WNBA-rostered play- er, Irish national Sue Moran.
Rockhampton's QABL (Queens- land Australian Basketball League) delegate Steve Richards rates Moran as the highest credentialled player to suit-up for the Cyclones, and possibly for the QABL.
Moran, 24, joined the Liberty's roster before returning to a coach- ing role at her college, St Joseph's University in Philadelphia.
During her college-playing days Moran, a 175cm versatile player, finished third in the US for scoring in her final year and was named league MVP.
In her four years at St Joseph's, Moran amassed 2000 points, smash- ing all records.
Moran relishes the opportunity to play again during the US summer break.
Moran is due to arrive in Rock- hampton late next month.
Meanwhile, the Cyclones are still chasing a second import.
