Nice pick, (Perth) Lynx! Very Happy

Quote:
Imports are back in the WNBL, and the Perth Lynx are thrilled to announce the signing of sharpshooting 5'11 guard Marina Mabrey from the Dallas Wings (WNBA). A New Jersey native, Mabrey found success early, winning Gold as a member of the 2014 USA Basketball Under 18 National Team at the FIBA Americas Championship. As a college senior, she won a National Championship with Notre Dame and still holds the title for most three's made in the program's history (274).

Drafted 19th overall in the 2019 WNBA Draft to the Los Angeles Sparks, Mabrey played 31 games but found it challenging to find enough net with limited minutes. Traded to the Dallas Wings in 2020, Mabrey continued to build her game, and in her second and current season, she is averaging 15 pts, 5 rbds and is shooting 48% at the three-point line.

Head Coach Ryan Petrik is pumped to have the guard on the roster. "Marina is an amazingly gifted player, but especially at the offensive end where the split second she walks over the half-court line she becomes a problem for defences to try and solve"

"She not only can shoot it at an elite clip and from extreme range, but she can floor it and get her head on the rim seemingly whenever she wants, which is usually pretty rare for an elite shooter."

"With our style of play and wanting to double down on our pace and space philosophy, adding Marina will no doubt help unlock the rest of our squad and make their jobs that much easier."

Deciding to come to Perth was an easy one for Mabrey, who said, “The Lynx is a high-level professional team in a great location and a competitive league”

“The Lynx coaches spoke with me before the season about their plans for this year, and the way they run their offence and defence fits my game and a place where I can be successful. The club has an excellent reputation and treats the players like family.”

Off the court, Mabrey is passionate about the promotion and respect showed towards women athletes. In 2019 she created a t-shirt line called 'This is My Kitchen' as an underlying message in response to the sexist online comments and reactions to posts concerning women's basketball.

The Perth Lynx roster for WNBL 2021/22 now features Darcee Garbin, Alex Sharp, Ashleigh Isenbarger, Lauren Scherf, Emma Clarke, Alexandra Ciabattoni and Marina Mabrey.

If "get her head on the rim" isn't an Australian expression for a successful drive to the basket, that coach really lets loose when promoting a new signee.

Can we start Mabrey over the point guards please? Very underwhelmed by all the pgs have done this season. Mabrey was a beast as a starter.

Any news at all from the Wings over the Olympics? You’d think they coulda released a nugget of info or something to the public for Dan’s to consume in the middle of the season during a prolonged break.

If nothing else, these have a much better color scheme going for them than the previous Rebel jerseys. I actually like this redesign. No, they don't scream "REBEL" per se, but with the putting of "Texas" on them, I mean... one could argue that Texas is a bit rebellious these days as it relates to current events... Razz

Helluva time to promote Texas. Thankfully the team does not have to follow the lead of the stupid Governor. Hoping for a Covid-free rest of the season.

Houston has been gone a LONG TIME. I would not hold my breath waiting for their return.

I wanted to see the jerseys worn by a large group before I commented on them. Anyway, I like the colours and font - but why 'Texas' on the front? Just seems odd.

Because if you can manage to make people think you're "Texas's team" then you open up a load more people to watch your games and buy your merchandise. Also, to make them different from the other jerseys they needed something other than 'Dallas' or 'Wings'. And given previous events, probably wanted it to be as inoffensive as humanly possible. 'Texas' is nice and safe.

Yeah, hopefully they get back to back wins. But, Atl's hungry and with this team you never know. But I'm thrill regardless
