“I’m happy I’m here,” said Cambage, who will fly back home Saturday. “It’s a little scary, but I’ve just got to turn into a big adventurer.”

Cambage believes coming to the U.S. was the best move for her career after she averaged 22 points and eight rebounds in the WNBL last season in Australia. After playing her first season in Tulsa, she’ll return home to train with the national team and, hopefully, play in the Olympics.

“If I was still in college, I think I’d be crazy right now,” Cambage said. “I can’t do school and play basketball full-time.”

Instead, as one of two Australians drafted this year, she’s hoping to make the WNBA popular back home and join three-time MVP Lauren Jackson in a long pipeline of players to the United States.

“We might be taking over,” Cambage said. “You never know.”
