THEIR season may be over, but Lady Bandits young gun Olivia Barber is far from finished.
The promising forward will head to Darwin this weekend for the Schools Sports Australia under-18 championships.
Barber, 16, is a bottom-age player representing New South Wales.
Despite missing a number of SEABL games due to concussion throughout the 2018 season, Barber impressed when available.
She averaged 7.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and one assist across 13 contests, but improved noticeably as the season went on.
Her three-point shooting improved late in the season, as did her defence, displaying a knack for picking the opposition's pocket.
Barber turned in her best performance of the season in the Lady Bandits last game of the year, dropping 18 points in a loss to the Kilsyth Cobras.
The teenager also secured three steals in an exciting showing.
She has been part of an impressive group of young players that revitalised the Lady Bandits fortunes over the past three seasons under head coach Jim Wilson.
The team, including the likes of Casey Ardern and Charlotte Beavan, will face new challenges in 2019 when former Olympian and WNBA MVP Lauren Jackson takes over as coach.
