The Bendigo Spirit have added another key signing for the 2021-22 Women's National Basketball League season.
Canadian power forward Katherine Plouffe has agreed to terms with the club and joins an exciting list of Spirit recruits.
The 28-year-old representated Canada at the 2016 Olympics in Rio and the 2014 World Championships.
Coach Tracy York said Plouffe's 191cm frame, experience, speed, and ball pressure will suit the Spirit's playing style this year.
"Katherine comes to the Spirit with excellent basketball pedigree and playing credentials," York said.
"She has been a Canadian national team player, and is in their current 3x3 team.
"She comes to us after playing in France for Basket Landes and winning the semi-final MVP this year.
"Katherine will bring experience and versatility and we think she'll complement our roster very well."
Prior to playing professionally, Plouffe spent four years in the United States with highly-rated college Marquette.
With Plouffe, Opals star Leiliani Mitchell, the sweet-shooting Maddie Garrick and rebounding machine Anneli Maley all joining the roster, the Spirit look well-placed for an improved win-loss record this summer.
