MILWAUKEE - Former University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee women's basketball standout Lindsay Laur has signed a contract to continue her professional basketball career in the Women's National Basketball League with the Logan Thunder.
Laur has been playing for the Hobart Lady Chargers of the South East Australian Basketball League since the spring, averaging just under 19 points and 11 rebounds a contest.
The WNBL is the top women's professional basketball league in Australia. It consists of 10 teams with the season running from October through March.
"Ever since coming to Hobart and playing in the SEABL, playing in the WNBL was a distant dream," Laur said. "But now that it's a reality, I couldn't be happier and am so grateful for the opportunity to play for the Logan Thunder. The coaches and administration seem wonderful there and it is a family atmosphere - which is what I like. Playing at Milwaukee and for Coach Botham truly prepared me for my professional career. The discipline and work ethic instilled in me has really given me that edge in my and I am forever thankful for that."
