Ranking the top 10 Aussie women lighting up NCAA basketball
Look no further than the NCAA to see the Australian talent rising up the ranks in women's basketball. Here's a look at our top 10.
The Australian talent currently doing work in women’s college basketball is extraordinary. As we turn over to a new year, let’s take a look at the best performing 10 Aussie women in NCAA basketball this season so far.
1. Georgia Amoore (Virginia Tech)
16.8 points, 7.3 assists, 3 rebounds (34.1 minutes per game)
Georgia Amoore has been a constant in the Virginia Tech program since the 2020/21 season and shot to stardom last season when she led the Hokies to the program’s first Final Four appearance. She’s continuing to torch opponents with her scoring ability, but has taken her game to new heights by refining her playmaking skills.
She’s never been afraid to drive into the paint, but this season her decision making has made her so much harder to defend and because of that her assist average has risen from 4.9 per game last season to 7.7 this season.

One of the most enjoyable players to watch in college basketball, you’ll be hearing plenty more about Amoore in the lead up to the WNBA Draft in April, where she is projected to be a lottery pick.
