FORMER Coffs Harbour Suns junior Kristy Wallace is currently playing her third season in the best women’s basketball league in the world.

The 28-year-old is playing for the Indiana Fever in the current Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) season in the USA.

The Fever guard has averaged 5.6 points, 2.3 assists, 2.1 rebounds, and one steal a game in her 21 minutes a game.

The Australian Opals player has been a teammate of this year’s number one draft pick Caitlin Clark, one of the best prospects in women’s basketball history after finishing her college career as the all-time leading women’s scorer.

Wallace made her WNBA debut in 2022 playing for the Atlanta Dream, before being traded to the Fever last year.

2022 was a breakout year for her winning bronze playing for the Australian Opals at the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup in Sydney, after establishing herself as one of the best players in the Women’s National Basketball League.

Wallace is in line for a spot on the Australian Opals team for the Paris Olympics, after being named in the 26-player squad who will vie for the last twelve spots on the Olympic team.
