Wildcats Worldwide January ’21

Former Alloyfold Canterbury Wildcats and Representative players are faring well in American college basketball right now

Doing particularly well is shooting guard Amiee Book at California State University, Fullerton. Amiee has missed the last couple of games with an ankle injury sustained in practice but she still heads the Titans scoring averaging 15 points per game – that’s 8th on the Big West Conference scoring list.

She has led the California State Titans scoring in all but two of the nine games she has played this season. Amiee has a 3-point shooting percentage of 43%, also top-10 in the conference, having made 19 from 44 from beyond the arc this season.

Helen Matthews is having a fine Freshman season at Wofford College where the Terriers are traveling well in the Southern Conference, sitting second on the ladder with a 5-2 record. The Terriers beat North Carolina Greensboro 63-59 in their latest game – the 2019 Wildcat dished 7 assists to go with 9 points, 4 rebounds and 2 steals whilst playing a team high 34 minutes. Helen is averaging 5.6 points and 3.8 rebounds, the leading performer amongst freshmen on the Wofford team.

Tsubasa Nisbet, a Junior at Georgia Southern University, is a reliable performer off the bench for the Eagles. The Eagles are 3-5 in the Sun Belt Conference with Tsubasa recently making her 50th Division I appearance.

Charlotte Whittaker is a Sophomore at the University of Colorado where the Buffaloes are 4-7 in the Pac-12 Conference, arguably the toughest division in women’s collegiate basketball. With a season high 11 points against Western Colorado Charlotte is averaging 5 points per game for the Buffs.

Away from NCAA Division I basketball congratulations are in order for Ashlee Strawbridge, Molly Cockburn and Brooklyn Pouwhare, the trio having recently made their Junior College debuts. Ashlee has started all four games for the College of Southern Idaho (3-1) averaging 5 points and 3 rebounds per game.

Molly debuted for Miles Community College (3-0) last week whilst Brooklyn has posted some big rebounding numbers for Utah State Eastern (5-0). The Avonside Girls’ High School product has grabbed double figure boards on two occasions and averages 6.6 rebounds per game.

We wish all of these players the best of luck over the coming weeks of the collegiate season.
