The Melbourne Tigers are elated to announce that elite cross code athlete, Monique Conti will be in Tiger’s colours again for the 2021 NBL1 South season.

A Tiger since the age of seven, the club admires Monique’s loyalty and commitment. Pre-covid, in the 2019 NBL1 season, the classy point guard put up great numbers averaging 20.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.2 assists and over 35 minutes per game.

She was a part of the Southern Flyers WNBL 2020 championship winning team.

Mon manages a challenging yearly schedule and is an elite athlete across basketball and the rapidly growing AFLW. She is a marquee player with Richmond, so there is a strong Tiger link across the whole year!

“I’ve been a Melbourne Tiger my whole life since I started rep basketball,” Conti told NBL1’s The Fast Break in late 2020

“It is my club, my home club. I guess I call it home. I would love to play there for the rest of my NBL1 career but then again you just don’t know what can happen, there’s a lot of factors that come into it”.

Head coach David Herbert is building a strong and deeper roster for the 2021 NBL1 season, with the play-offs a clear target. Monique is a big part of this overall plan.

Keep posted for further signings to be announced shortly!
