Jillian leads Otago Goldrush to championship

The Otago Goldrush has won the 2015 New Zealand Women's Basketball Championship, largely due to Jillian's efforts.

Jillian led her team in scoring (14.1 ppg), rebounding (10.6 rpg) and assists (2.5 apg) during the three-month twelve-team competition. She tallied 14 points, 12 rebounds, four steals and an assist in the championship game and was named the MVP.

Otago head coach Todd Marshall said, “Having the competitions leading player, Jillian Harmon in the team was a major factor in the team’s success. It certainly adds a bit of spice to it. When you already have a good team a player of that quality turns you into a stunning team.”

Here are reports of the championship game:

Jillian will join the Tall Ferns (the New Zealand Women's Basketball National Team) in July for a trial camp, after which a 12-player roster will be named to further prepare for the 2015 FIBA Oceania Women's Championship vs Australia on August 15-17.

Then Jillian will head to Lucca, Italy for the 2015-16 season.
