Mums the Word for the Hoops 4 Health Team
With Mothers Day just passing on Sunday, it dawned on the Hoops 4 Health Team that 7 out of the 10 players are mothers. During timeouts or after games the bench is crowded with little children wanting their mothers attention or just keen to see how their mums are doing.
Prior to the tip off in the game against the Northern Territory, Rohanee Cox couldn't start the game due to her 14 week old daughter being in need of mum's attention.
"Its good to act as a mentor and role model for the younger generation but also as a mum it shows you don't have to give up sports after you have a child."
Mishy Friel and Trish Graham also form a mother/daughter combination in the team. The big question is does Mishy call her mum or Trish when they on the court together?
