The Bendigo Bank Spirit has signed highly credentialed
scoring guard Renae Camino for the 2012/13 WNBL season.
Camino, who has WNBL career averages of 16 points and six
rebounds per game, will bring scoring punch and athleticism
to the Spirit.
Bendigo Spirit coach Bernie Harrower said he was looking
forward to working with Camino.
"Renae is one of the few guards in the WNBL who has the
skills and athleticism to genuinely create her own shot at
any time. That makes her a constant offensive threat and
very tough to defend," he said.
"It'll be exciting to have her in Spirit colours and we're
confident that in our system she can continue to be a
dominant player in the league."
"Renae's got a really good balance to her game. She can get
to the basket, score on a fast break and shoot the three.
That makes her entertaining to watch which will be great
for the region's basketball fans."
Camino is currently playing for the Bendigo Lady Braves in
the SEABL and is averaging a team high 17 points a game to
go along with 6 rebounds and 3 assists.
"I'm enjoying living in Bendigo and really looking forward
to continuing my WNBL career here," Camino said.
"The Spirit has done some great things since they've been
in the league and hopefully I can help to continue that
success and get the team back into the finals next
Camino has represented Australia at junior and senior
levels, won a WNBL championship, been a WNBL Grand Final
most valuable player and started her career by winning the
WNBL's Rookie of the Year award. Last season she led the
Logan Thunder in scoring.
