Coming off the back of one of their most successful seasons in years the Albury-Wodonga Bandits are looking to continue to build on their first taste of NBL1.
After the women's side just missed out on finals, guard Emma Mahady hopes to push for one better in 2020.
"Personally the expectation is we want to make finals, once you're there you never know," Mahady said.

"Last season we were a bit inconsistent.
"We showed in some games what we could be and in other games we just didn't.
"That came to bite us in the end, so we were one game out of the finals and lost a few that we really should have won."
Mahady is confident new coach Matt Paps has what it takes to keep the Bandits on the right path heading into their second NBL1 season.
"From having a chat to Matt it's looking like that's the way we'll keep moving," Mahady said.
"It's a really exciting time for us right now."
