The Albury-Wodonga Bandits have signed Cherise Daniel to the women's roster for the 2019 NBL1 season.
An athletic and versatile 5’11 guard/forward, Daniel is the final piece of the puzzle for the Border women's outfit.
A former college teammate of power forward Emilee Harmon’s at Ohio State, Daniel has played all around the world with stops in Germany, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Greece, Hungary and Iceland on her impressive basketball resume.
An offensive weapon, Daniel can handle the ball, shoot effectively from the outside as well as using her athleticism to penetrate to the basket.
She is also a highly skilled ball handler, a strong rebounder and a willing defender with quick feet and hands.
Daniel last played in Iceland in 2017/18 - averaging 21 points and 9 rebounds per game.
