WNBL19: University of Capitals coach Paul Goriss on Kristy Wallace signing and a new look team
Speaking to this site after the 2016/17 WNBL season wrapped up, University of Canberra Capitals coach Paul Goriss reflected on some of the talented players that had come through the AIS when he coached there. Many of the youngsters he had worked with had become household names – Matthew Dellavedova, Dante Exum and Ben Simmons.
But there was one “very special player” he mentioned that was relatively unknown at the time – Kristy Wallace.
Since then, Wallace has further honed her craft at Division I program Baylor and played a starring role in Australia's gold medal winning 2017 World University Games team.
She has also signed a two-year deal with the University of Canberra Capitals, reuniting with Goriss for her first professional basketball.
