CAMERON TAYLOR-WILLIS GOES INTO HER SECOND YEAR
Essex Rebels are pleased to welcome back Cameron Taylor-Willis for her second season.
The 20-year-old made the move to the Essex Sport Arena last summer following a successful junior and senior career with neighbouring Ipswich Basketball Club, helping them win back-to-back WNBL Division 1 titles in 2021 and 2022. Cameron’s outstanding performances, including being named MVP in the Hoopsfix All-Star Classic in 2020, made her one of the most sought-after homegrown female talents in the country.
Stepping up to WBBL level for the first time, the 6’1” forward had a frustrating first season that was curtailed by an injury suffered in December that kept Cameron out for the majority of the season. However, in the rare glimpses we got to see Cameron feature in a Rebels jersey, she showed exciting promise with her shooting efficiency.
Commenting on going into her second year with the Rebels, Cameron Taylor-Willis said:
“I am excited to be back, can’t wait to be 100% fit and back playing in a Rebels jersey”
Ashley Cookson, Head of Basketball Performance, added:
“Cam is an exciting young player with a high ceiling. She showed great promise in the early part of the 22-23 season. It has been great to work with her over the summer, rehabilitating her ankle and working on her game. I’m excited to see the positive impact she will have on our roster this season.”
Cameron Taylor-Willis is the third player to commit to the Essex Rebels roster for the upcoming WBBL season, joining Claire Paxton and Megan Haines.
