A 6’2” Australian-born forward, Moody was the second former WNBA player to represent the GB programme, when she made her debut for Mark Clark’s team in the 2007 Eurobasket promotion campaign.

Originally from Victoria, Moody enjoyed a stand-out college career at Tulsa and, immediately after her senior season in 2006, was signed by the Houston Comets in the Women’s NBA, for whom she averaged an impressive 13 points and 4.7 rebounds over her 32-game season.

At Tulsa, Moody had led her team to the 2006 Conference regular season championship, as well as victory in the Conference tournament, and made the All-Conference second team in her senior season. She ended her college career having played the most games in Tulsa history (120) and as the school’s sixth all-time leading scorer (1,122 points).

After her WNBA season, Moody headed to Europe to Euroleague club Fenerbahce Istanbul, with whom she started the 2006-07 season before completing it in Spain, with Cajacanarias. In 2007-08, Moody was back in Spain, at Cadi la Seu D’urgell after making her GB debut in the summer of 2007.

Moody played in all six of GB’s Eurobasket B Division promotion games, averaging 13.3 points and 4 rebounds a game over the six contests and ensuring she would return in the summer of 2008 when GB started their A Division group campaign. Over eight matches in that summer, Moody hit 11.4 points and 4.8 rebounds a game.

By that stage, her domestic career had moved on to Italy, with Serie A side Banco di Sicilia Ribera for whom she also played in the EuroCup.

Club commitments ruled Moody, who qualifies for GB through British parentage, out of the 2009 international season and the 2009-10 club season saw her heading back to Australia, and the WNBL, after she signed with the Dandenong Rangers.

Damian Jennings says: “It’s an umbrella term but Megan is a “basketball player,” there’s no other words for it. She is an incredible athlete and has a three-point shot that is virtually unstoppable, she jumps so high and gets it up so quickly. She can beat players and finish at the basket and is so long that she gets in the lane well defensively. Her production for GB has been very good but I think there is so much more to come from her, the potential is exciting!”
