From Michele Timms and Rachael Sporn to Lauren Jackson, over the past two decades Australian basketballers have made key contributions to their WNBA teams. 

This season 4 players will be looking to continue that tradition. 

Abby Bishop

Age: 27
Position: Forward / Center
Number: 5

Bishop is back for another season with Seattle Storm. 

In the forward's third season with the Storm, she will be looking to continue building on her minutes and output on the court as she looks to capture a second championship with Seattle. 

As always, alongside Bishop will be her greatest fan Zala.

Erin Phillips

Age: 30
Position: Guard
Number: 31

2016 marks a decade since Phillips first played in the WNBA for Connecticut Sun. 

In that time period she has collected two WNBA championships.  One with Indiana Fever in 2012. 

And alongside Penny Taylor at Phoenix Mercury in 2014

Phillips is hoping her championship touch follows her to new team Dallas Wings

Penny Taylor

Age: 34
Position: Small forward / Shooting guard
Number: 13

After a season away, Penny Taylor returns for a fourth stint in the WNBA with the Phoenix Mercury and they were just a little excited by her homecoming. 

Taylor is a bit of a WNBA legend with honours including 3× WNBA All-Star (2002, 2007, 2011) and 3× WNBA champion (2007, 2009, 2014) with the Mercury. 

After her last championship in 2014, Taylor and her teammates were honoured in a White House ceremony hosted by President Barack Obama. 

The Mercury are hoping the return of Taylor, along with Diana Taurasi and Brittney Griner will provide the championship formula under the guidance of Australian coach Sandy Brondello. 

Jenna O’Hea

Age: 28
Position: Guard / Forward
Number: 4

O'Hea is set for a fifth season the WNBA and a second with the Seattle Storm. 

O'Hea joins Abby Bishop at the Storm with the Aussie duo hoping to continue the Australian tradition of bringing championships to Seattle.

That's not to say she was relaxing in the WNBA off-season.  Like many other players, O'Hea headed to Europe and came back with some silverware

It's set to be great season so get ready to watch them work!
