Introducing… She Hoops!
Basketball Australia’s one-stop-shop online platform which will empower, educate, inform and connect women in basketball with a lens on grassroots to global.
She Hoops – has been developed and inspired out of BA’s women and girls strategy and will be a safe and inclusive destination brimming with content, resources and information.
Australia’s greatest ever basketballer has won and done it all – for her country, in Europe, the WNBA and on home soil in the WNBL.
Born to parents Gary and Maree who both represented their country in basketball, Lauren Jackson might have been destined for huge things with her natural ability and height but her greatness, work ethic, resilience and winning pedigree was earned and learned.
Jackson was part of the iconic AIS team of teenagers which took the WNBL by storm in 1999 to win the championship. She would go on to win another 4 titles with the Canberra Capitals along with eight combined league and Grand Final MVP awards in a glittering WNBL career.
Selected by the Seattle Storm with the coveted No.1 Pick in the 2001 WNBA draft was just the beginning of a stunning era for player and club which would end with the Storm retiring her iconic No.15 jersey upon Jackson’s retirement.
