Former SMS Lady Bear Jackie Stiles will continue her professional basketball career in Australia. She has signed a deal to play with the Sea FM Townsville Fire. Stiles won the WNBA Rookie of the year award in 2001, but has missed most of the last two seasons with a variety of injuries. After the Portland Fire—which took her in the 2001 draft—folded, Stiles became a member of the L.A. Sparks, but didn’t play at all last season or this season. Stiles is the all-time leading scorer in the history of NCAA women’s basketball. The Australian league’s season begins in October and runs through January.
