Towering shooter Grace Nweke has made a meteoric rise from schoolgirl status in 2019 when she was elevated from training partner to fulltime member of the Mystics playing squad in very quick succession. The 1.93m standout has continued to excel after a dominant 2021 where she set a new ANZ Premiership scoring record and will again anchor the Mystics shooting circle in 2022. Born in New Zealand, and of Nigerian descent, Nweke has quickly grabbed the spotlight with her prowess under the hoop, temperament and athletic ability. Bolstering her movement and strength in the air have added to the skillset of the richly talented shot-maker who is destined for a long elite level career. That has been endorsed with first-time selection in the 2021-22 Silver Ferns squad.
