Denson averaged 7.8 points and 4.3 rebounds during her senior year, as the Sun Devils returned to the NCAA tournament but could only manage a second round appearance after making the Elite Eight in 2005. Since graduating, Denson has been a two-time MVP in the Puerto Rican League and completed stints in both Poland and Romania. Having toured Australia during her College career with Arizona State she was eager to get back down under to play.
“When I visited Australia in College I loved it, the Country, the Basketball, the whole experience. I have always wanted to play here. I have heard great things about the League and look forward to the quality competition,” said Denson.
Denson spoke about her NCAA Tournament appearances and helping the Lady Cobras build on their 2008 success, “It is every players dream to play in the NCAA tournament. I was lucky enough to play and make it to the Elite Eight and play on some very successful teams. I am now excited about joining the successful Lady Cobras program. I have high expectations of myself to help the team grow on last year’s success,” she said.
2008 SEABL Championship winning Coach Jason Knight is optimistic about the Lady Cobras repeating in 2009 and is looking forward to having Denson join the team. “We are very excited about getting a person and player of the quality of Amy to the Kilsyth program. Amy has really continued to expand her basketball ability since finishing her career at very good Arizona State Program.”
“Amy will fit right in with the current team, as she has a blue collar approach which is valued amongst our group. Adding her to the team will help us a lot in the way we want to play in 2009, her inside / outside game will make her a quality player in the SEABL.”
The Lady Cobras will bring the same group of locals into the 2009 Season which is highlighted by up and coming stars Sarah Parsons and Clare Papavs but needed to replace import Jess Lonon and WNBL player Desiree Glaubitz. Denson will add a new dimension to the team but slot right into the Lady Cobras style of play.
“I think the one thing that will make Amy feel at home at Kilsyth, is just like Arizona State we work as a team and everyone is expected to work hard and do the little things to make us a better team. Adding Amy has been a huge boost for the local content of players, ensuring that we remain competitive in 2009 and beyond,” said Knight.
Kilsyth kick off their 2009 campaign on Saturday 14 March in Bendigo, the location of the Lady Cobras historic preliminary final victory in 2008.
