King returns to the Lady Braves

FORWARD Lauren King has re-signed with the Lady Braves for the 2014 season.

King will return to the side after playing a key role in the team’s success last season.

The 29-year-old is excited about donning the Braves colours for another season.

“I’m looking forward to getting back on the court in Bendigo and, hopefully, having the chance to compete for another championship,” she said.

“Bendigo has been an enjoyable place to play over the years and the support we get from the community has always been great.”

In 2013 she was the Braves’ third leading scorer and second leading rebounder, averaging 13 points a game.

She was also named the club's Most Valuable Player.

Lady Braves head coach Johnathan Goodman said he was pleased to have King back for another season. 

He praised King's versatility and leadership.

“Lauren’s a player that can hurt teams from the paint or the perimeter and has shown to be a valuable leader for many years,” Goodman said.

“She’s also a proven defender and rebounder that can guard a variety of players.

“Her return is a key addition for the group, and we’re looking forward to having her back.”

King is playing with the Sydney Uni Flames in the WNBL. She will return to Bendigo at the completion of the season.

King’s re-signing leads a growing list of players who have committed to the Braves.

Alex Bunton, Heather Oliver and Kerryn Harrington have all signed on for 2014. 

The Lady Braves face Brisbane in their round one clash on March 22.
