Milestone for Micaela Cocks

Micaela Cocks suits up for her 150th game for Townsville Fire on Saturday night. The Tall Ferns guard will be assisting the Fire (11-8) in their quest for a sixth consecutive Australian Women’s National Basketball League play-off spot when they host Sydney University Flames (14-6).

Cocks told the Laceylowdown, “I am looking forward for the game against Sydney as we have had many close games with them throughout the season. They are an in form team at the moment and we really want and need to win this one.”

The reigning WNBL Grand Final MVP will become just the second player to represent Townsville in 150 games.

“It’s an exciting milestone to have 150 game for the same club,” said Cocks who made her debut in 2011 and has since helped Townsville to play-off basketball in every season since.

The Beijing Olympian added, “I didn’t really know where Townsville was when I joined the club but I love it up here. It’s my favourite kind of weather, I love the sun.

“I didn’t expect to stay here so long but I haven’t regretted anything.”

The former North Harbour and University of Oregon standout sits fifth on the Townsville all-time scoring list and is third for assists.
