West Coast Waves
Points: 16.4ppg Rohanee Cox
Rebound: 8.2rpg Rohanee Cox
Assists: 2.7apg Melissa Marsh
Steals: 2.0spg Rohanee Cox
A difficult campaign for the Waves as they struggled for consistency in a competition where there are few easy games. The taxing nature of travelling from the west made away trips all the more draining.
A lot of the pressure fell on the likes of Rohanee Cox and Melissa Marsh, with strength in depth a concern certain to be addressed in the off-season.
Best Win 64-62 v Bendigo Spirit (Round 14)
Facing a team predicted by many experts as a title challenger can be a daunting task, but a brilliant team performance from the Waves ensured a win over Bendigo as Melissa Marsh and Rohanee Cox combined for 32 points.
Standout: Rohanee Cox
Almost impossible to go past the 2009 WNBL MVP, producing another outstanding season of 16.4 points per game, 8.2 rebounds and two steals.
Coming out of retirement after serious knee surgery forced her to sit out the 2010/11 campaign, Cox returned to the type of form that has made her a Jayco Opals regular and two-time WNBL All Star Five recipient.
Rising Star: Jasmine Hooper
In her second season with the Waves, Hooper lifted her production on the offensive end significantly, almost doubling her average to 8.1 points per game.
Improved shooting percentage from the field was coupled with increased output in rebounding and assists.
Media: Shayne Hope (The Western Australian)
After showing much promise in their first season under David Herbert, the West Coast Waves took a backwards step during a disappointing 2011/12 campaign.
Import Dymond Simon was expected to cover the loss of retired veteran Tully Bevilaqua when she arrived from Arizona State, but was sent home within weeks when a knee injury flared up. Olympian Rohanee Cox came out of retirement and proved a hit, leading the Waves in scoring, steals and rebounds.
West Coast battled their way to just two wins for the season, one of those against last-placed AIS, and Herbert was told his contract would not automatically renewed. He was invited to reapply for the position but was ultimately replaced by New Zealand national women’s coach Kennedy Kereama.
