Konica Minolta Team of the Year – University of Canberra Capitals – BASKETBALL

The UC Capitals stormed to the 2018/19 WNBL title, winning 13 of their final 14 games before defeating Adelaide in front of a full house at the Arena in February to claim the Championship.

Brilliant off-season recruiting by coach Paul Gorris, including the addition of Kia Nurse,
Leilani Mitchell and League and Grand Final MVP Kelsey Griffin, completed a super talented unit that played exciting basketball that had local on their feet.

In recognition of a ground swell of community support, the team and their supporters were announced the Canberra Citizens of the Year in 2019.
