    Melbourne Boomers sign WNBA star Poppens

    We knew Chelsea was going to Melbourne for some time, but here's a quick recap from WNBL.com.au:

    WNBL.com.au: News Single[tt_news]=4569&tx_ttnews[backPid]=1&cHash=27293fc45e


    “Chelsea excels in the effort related areas of the game. I was impressed by her rebounding, her ability to run the floor and her intensity on defence." - Head Coach Guy Molloy


    Pop also got the pic in this article against the Chinese national team: WNBL.com.au: News Single[tt_news]=4568&tx_ttnews[backPid]=1&cHash=a9ac281512

    Also, this quote off of the WNBL site
    While they’ve lost a couple of quality young players in Alice Kunek and Elyse Penaluna, new import Chelsea Poppens is expected to be a star, and recruits Nicole Romeo and Amelia Todhunter should also be solid contributors.

    She needs to get a mouth-guard before she bites through her tongue!

    "Poppens hit a hot streak with eight points in four minutes to put the Boomers in control."

    Looks like her free throw soothing has regressed though. 2 for 6 is more like her freshman and sophomore years. Maybe just not in form yet.
