New PrintSync South West Slammers women’s coach Nathan Grover has made his first major signing ahead of the 2019 State Basketball League season.
The Slammers front court is set to be bolstered by American import Makailah Dyer.
The point guard was impressive in her SBL season debut at Perth Redbacks this year.
Grover predicted Dyer would fit in with the squad he was working hard to secure.
“Mak is going to be a great addition to our team and I have no doubt she will make an impact both on and off the court in the South West,” Grover said.
“She has different aspects to her game which fit really well within the system I want to implement this season, so I am looking forward to what she can do in the league in her second year as an import.
“I know our group is excited to have her as a teammate and they can’t wait to get on court with her.”
Dyer is set to be a welcome addition to the squad’s guard roster after youngsters Georgia Denehey and Tayah Burrows signed with Joondalup Wolves and Rockingham Flames respectively.
