WNBL Team of the Year Honors for Makana Stone
After an impressive debut season in England, Makana Stone has been named in 2020-21 WNBL Team of the Year!
The former Whitman College standout averaged 15.9PPG, 13.6RPG and 3.4SPG on the year, as well as finishing with the league’s third highest efficiency rating. Makana’s fantastic individual performances in the league also saw her named runner-up for the WNBL Wilson Player of the Year award.
After being named to the WNBL Team Of The Year, Makana said:
“I just want to express my gratitude for being recognised alongside some of the WNBL’s top athletic performers. The talent – that is contributed from both the younger players as well as veterans, including those who weren’t selected for this team – is quite impressive and has been fun to compete with and against this season. I’m extremely grateful that we all had the opportunity to compete during a pandemic season. Big congratulations to the other players selected for this Team of the Year nod, well deserved.”
A huge congratulations to fellow Play Overseas athletes Erica Meyer and Schekinah Bimpa for also earning first place votes in the WNBL Wilson Player of the Year award.
It has been a pleasure watching all of our athletes compete this year and we could not be more proud of their achievements on the court.
