HEAR INTERVIEW: Moy happy to find form as finals near
BASKETBALL: In a huge boost for Gladstone Port City Power on the eve of next weekend's play-offs is the form of one of its new players.
Moengaroa 'Moy' Subritzky found her range against USC Rip City with five triples among her 17 points after somewhat of a lean period in the previous few matches.
New Zealand-born Subritzky has been more than a handy addition to a rampant Power side which boasts the likes of superstars Tabatha Richardson-Smith, Cassie Rochel as fellow 'newbies' as well as veteran and captain Carmian Mellars.
Subritzky said she has been working hard at training and coach Ray Cooper has encouraged her to be more pro-active with her shooting.
"I've just pretty much been ready to catch and shoot," she said.
"I've had other opportunities, but haven't been ready."
'Moy' most recent club was the Maryland Eastern Shore in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and she played for Hawks with distinction throughout her career.
She competed in 86 games and produced a total of 827 points, 465 rebounds, 175 assists, 72 steals and 25 blocks.
Subritzky also achieved 12 career double-doubles that included eight at the start of this year.
"It's a lot quicker in America, but I like this 'ball here because I grew up playing Aussie, Kiwi 'ball and I really do enjoy playing this kind of basketball," she said.
'Moy's' experience in the US will stand her and the team in good stead because the pace of the game will step up during the play-offs.
And it's the off the court stuff that will also help once the heat is applied on it.
"We're a tight group of girls and we hang out a lot, but I think now that the play-offs are coming, we're trying to kick ourselves into gear," she said.
