'Excited': Bri Bailey to remain with Port City Power
PORT CITY Power player Bri Bailey has committed to the club for next year's Queensland Basketball League season.
Last year, she finished the season with 11 points, three rebounds and three assists per game.
She also scored a season high of 22 points against the Sunshine Coast Phoenix in Round 2.
"I'm excited to be returning back to Gladstone colours for another season,” Ms Bailey said.
"I learnt a lot under Ray's guidance and can't wait to bring bigger and better things this coming season.”
Ms Bailey also reflected on her progress during the previous season.
"I had such a great season last year under Ray, and with all teammates that we did have,” she said.
"I'm really excited and happy to come back with a few teammates that we had last season.”
For Bri and the women's Power team, last season was filled with mixed emotions.
"We had a few rough patches,” she said.
"A few people had to go back home for personal reasons.”
Ms Bailey also hopes the team chemistry formed last year will continue.
"Towards the end of the season we started clicking, which was great, even though we had heaps of injuries throughout,” she said.
Women's team head coach Ray Cooper said he was happy with her decision to stay with the team.
"I'm happy to have Bri back with us,” Mr Cooper said.
"She will be back as part of the core group which help us retain our fast-paced style.
"I look forward to seeing her develop more this season as a leader from the guard position.”
