3-and-D specialist Carly Turner has re-signed with the Cobras for the 2022 NBL1 season.


Turner was a terror on the defensive end for the Cobras in 2021, leading the team in steals (1.9spg) while ranking second in blocked shots (1.2bpg) and rebounding (7.1rpg). Turner was also an adept  playmaker, finishing second on the Cobras roster in scoring (9.5ppg) and assists (2.9apg). 


One of the league’s most underrated players, Turner’s incredible defensive versatility, stellar passing and ability to light it up from deep were key in helping lead a young Cobra roster to an impressive 9-4 finish to 2021. And with a season of NBL1 experience under her belt, the former Saint Mary’s star will be looking to take her game to the next level in 2022.


“Carly is incredibly driven and competitive and any team would be lucky to have a player that brings that to their roster,” Cobras head coach Hannah Lowe said. 


“Carly had been away from basketball for an extended period of time leading into 2021, but after a terrific season, 2022 promises to be even better. I’m excited to see where she takes her game in the season ahead.”


Turner joins a trio of Kilsyth juniors -Nikita Young, Sarah Haberfield and Georgia Booth – on the perimeter, along with point guard Bree Whatman, giving the Cobras an exciting and multi-dimensional backcourt core.
