Super excited to announce my commitment to Arizona State University! Shoutout to all my coaches, friends, teammates and especially my family who have all helped me to this point! Very keen to start this next chapter in my basketball career and join the Sun Devil family! ❤️
Melbourne played for Basketball Australia’s Centre of Excellence during the 2019 NBL1 season where she averaged 11.4 points and 4.3 rebounds. The 5-10 guard also won a championship while playing with the Basketball Victoria U20 team.
She will be joining teammate Imogen Greenslade, who is a 6-foot-4 center from Sydney. The two played together in the U-20 championships and will be starting their first year at ASU together.
Melbourne picked ASU over Miami, Penn State and LSU. She is one of six freshman joining the Sun Devils this fall.
