Milo to give energy for the Power

BASKETBALL: A returning player hopes to make her second crack at QBL level a successful adventure at McDonalds Gladstone Port City Power.

Milomilo Nanai believes she will be a better and more confident player and is hell-bent to make every post a winner in 2018.

On the back of a successful season in New Zealand, where she averaged almost 10 points per game at 43 per cent on field shooting, Nanai also hauled in five rebounds per outing.

Not bad for a guard who likes it tough from both ends of the floor.

"My last stint with the program was only for a brief moment in 2016," she said.

"To be honest, I came not knowing what to expect of the league and was probably a little unprepared.

"This year I will be signing for a full season and I'm looking forward to representing the McDonalds Port City Power to the best of my abilities.

"It's going to be an exciting season."

Power women's head coach Ray Cooper is encouraged what Nanai will bring.

"I am very excited to have Milo returning to the club again," he said.

"Her impact was positive in her short stint during the 2016 season and I expect her to be a complimentary piece to our team and someone who offers great versatility on offence and defence.

"She has experience at this level and has a better gauge on what is required this time round."

Port City Power opens its QBL account with an away date against USC Rip City on Saturday, May 5.
