The NBL1 Cobra Women have added athletic forward Abi Curtin for the 2021 season.
Curtin, a NSW state team representative as a junior, gives the Cobras length, speed and athleticism to go alongside star centre Lauren Scherf, the versatile Carly Turner and gritty forward, Emma Peorce in the front court. The 6’1 forward spent three years at the University of Denver, helping the Pioneers secure a berth in the NCAA Women’s National Invitational Tournament in 2019 whilst playing on one of the nation’s highest scoring teams in the high-altitude rocky mountains.
