JCU Townsville Fire forward Cayla George has been formally unveiled at the Wattle Valley WNBL Player of the Week.
Having finished second during last year’s MVP voting, George spent the off-season with the Phoenix Mercury before returning to Townsville to spearhead the Fire’s title defence.
Leading the WNBL in rebounding, George posted a massive double-double against the Perth Lynx as she finished with a team-high 21 points and 17 boards to guide the Fire to a 10-point win.
The victory catapulted them to top place momentarily before the Lynx leapfrogged them after defeating SEQ the following day.
The Fire return to Townsville RSL Stadium on Friday night when they host the Bendigo Spirit in a Grand Final replay from 7pm.
