Bio: Richards emerged as one of the premier frontcourt players in the WNBL in the 2012/13 WNBL season, averaging career highs in points and rebounds as the Bendigo Spirit claimed their first WNBL Championship.
For many who have seen her develop at the Spirit these performances did not come as a surprise, with the country Victorian consistently averaging more than 12 points and 7 rebounds a game throughout her WNBL career. Starting out at the AIS, Richards made the move to the University of Oregon in 2004, spending three seasons at the college before returning to the WNBL in 2007 to join the Spirit.
Along with the likes of Chelsea Aubry, Kristi Harrower and Kelly Wilson, Richards formed the core that would guide the team to the 2013 and 2014 WNBL titles, earning two All-Star Five honours.
