London 2012 Olympic star Jenaya Wade-Fray has joined the WBBL squad for the remainder of the 2014/15 season.
Wade-Fray, a 5ft 9 shooting guard has played 38 caps for Great Britain being a key figure in the London 2012 Olympic Games. She spent four years at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga where in her senior year averaged 12.9 PPG & 6.2 RPG. Wade-Fray has also had spells in the UK with both Sheffield Hatters (2010/11) and Cardiff Archers (2011/12) so is a very familiar face to UK basketball.
Coach Vear is extremely excited to add such a high profile player to the squad as he continues to add more pieces to close out the season.
“Jenaya has only had a few practices under her belt but instantly you can see her level of professionalism and high basketball IQ. She is a player that leads by example which is really going to help our younger players. I’m excited to have her on board for the rest of the season where she is going to bring a lot to the Topcats.”
Wade-Fray will make her debut today against Manchester Mystics away at 8pm which is a must win for the Topcats to keep their playoff hopes alive. From everyone at the Topcats we want to welcome Jenaya to the family.
