“It’s great to have Ella join our program in 2024. I’ve known her for a while through the Vic Country program, she’s a fantastic person and a talented athlete. I’m excited for everyone to see Ella’s defensive versatility, she has the speed to defend smaller guards and the length to guard 4’s and 5’s. She will be a nightmare on the defensive end for opposing teams. Ella also brings an elite ability to get out and run in offensive transition which will be exciting for fans to see and add a big boost to our team.”

Ella said,

“I’m so happy to be a part of the Melbourne Tigers for next season. It’s exciting time and I’m looking forward to meeting my new teammates and the Tigers fans. I love the direction that Kaleb and the Tigers are going. Kaleb’s style of play of running the floor, fast paced style has my name all over it and I can’t wait to get started”.
