Tess Madgen

A fierce competitor from the moment she stepped on to a WNBL court, Madgen has quickly established herself as one of the most gifted offensive guards in Australia.The sister of NBL and Boomers star Ben Madgen, the 180cm guard impressed in her time at the AIS, also helping Australia finish fifth at the 2009 FIBA Under 19 World Championship.

Joining the Bendigo Spirit proved the perfect platform for Madgen to show her wares, leading the Spirit in scoring and taking out back-to-back club MVP honours. She then moved to Bulleen and a switch to point guard saw a year of development and growth for Madgen, still averaging in the top 15 in scoring and top 10 in assists.

Madgen carried this form into the senior team, earning a spot in the Opals team that won the 2013 FIBA Oceania Championship. This inspired Madgen to lead the young Melbourne Boomers to the WNBL finals.
