Costa commits to second year at Rebels

August 25, 2021

Rebels are excited to welcome back Lucrezia Costa 

The Italian native recently graduated from the University of Essex with a Postgraduate degree in Conflict Resolution. 

Lucrezia dominated the WBBL in her debut season where she averaged a double-double in points and rebounds quickly establishing herself as one of the best post players in the league.  

Lucrezia averaged 13 pts per game last season, finishing within the top 5 in the league leaders for free throws made and amongst the league leaders for 2pts made and securing a place in the top 5 WBBL league leaders for defensive and offensive rebounds she offers a great versatility at both ends of the court.

Tom Sadler, Head of Basketball Performance said “Lu had an impressive year last season, she was one of the most consistent players, averaging a double-double nearly every game, I am really pleased that Lu has signed onto the Essex Rebels for her 2nd season as she offers us a lot both offensively and defensively.  She is also continuing her studies at the University of Essex and we look forward to watching her thrive in her dual career choices”.
