REBELS SIGN THREE-TIME MVP WINNER DAYZSHA ROGAN
Essex Rebels are thrilled to announce the signing of point guard, Dayzsha Rogan!
Hailing from Ripley, Mississippi, Rogan joins from Serbian professional side ŽKK Spartak Subotica, where she set the league alight last season averaging 21.6 points, 3.6 assists, and 5.6 rebounds per game, as well as leading the league in steals with 63 in just 20 contests, earning her the achievement of being voted the Serbian Women’s First League MVP.
The 5”4” playmaker played collegiate basketball in the US before going pro in Serbia, competing for the Jackson State Tigers where she was a two-time Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) MVP winner, helping the Lady Tigers claim the 2021 SWAC title and a spot in the women’s NCAA tournament.
The coveted high-flying guard turned down offers from several professional clubs to sign for the Rebels and is another exciting addition to Ashley Cookson’s roster for the upcoming season following the recent announcement of Renee Busch.
Speaking about signing for the Essex Rebels and working under new head coach, Ashley Cookson, Rogan said:
“I’m extremely excited to get started and look forward to working with Coach Cookson. Being a Rebel means a lot to me, and I can already feel that being part of Essex feels like home and it is a great place to be”
Head of Basketball Performance, Ashley Cookson, had this to say signing Rogan:
“We are excited to have Dayzsha with our Rebels program this current season. Dayzsha’s showed explosive scoring power in her first pro season in Serbia. Looking forward to seeing how Dayzsha game translates to the Women’s British Basketball League.”
Welcome to the Rebels family Rogan! We can’t wait to see you in action.
Rogan joins Renee Busch as the Rebels second women’s signing as they prepare to upset the reigning Women’s British Basketball League Playoff champions, London Lions, on Saturday 21 October to kick off our Women’s British Basketball League campaign.
