Erica Carlson returns to the Pirates after leading the QBL last season in blocked shots and was also a top 5 rebounder. Standing at 6'4" with a 6'7" wing span Erica provides great rim protection with her ability to block and alter shots. "It changes the way a team can play defence knowing you have someone who can do that. You can put more pressure on the ball and it is not something you see often at the QBL level", said last years coach Peter Pollock.
Erica is currently playing in Germany where she is leading the league in blocked shots and rebounding, as well as averaging 15.4 ppg at 55%. Her team is currently sitting in second place in the south division and will most likely be in the playoffs. The playoffs will have a bearing on her arrival in Australia, depending on how far her team progresses.
Welcome back Erica!
