What They're Saying
"Alex is a long and fearless wing who can score and rebound at a very high level. She is very efficient with the ball, has great footwork and is always coming up with the 50-50 balls that win games. She will find a way to stuff the stat sheet consistently and make those around her better with her very high basketball IQ. Her experience at the Center of Excellence in Australia, where she was able to receive comprehensive training, as well as the tremendous training she received at Diamond Valley and with the Melbourne Boomers has prepared her well for the rigors of ACC competition." - Jen Hoover

"Alex prepares for everything on and off the court like a professional. It wasn't always like that but her time with Paul Goriss at the Center of Excellence, Guy Molloy, and her coaches at Diamond Valley, have helped with that progression. As a player, Alex has the ability to shoot the three, play off a ball screen and also get to the basket. She has deceptive foot speed and is a terrific rebounder, which will only get better. Her understanding of the game is her biggest asset. She will bring a strong work ethic, a sense of team, and a wealth of international experience to her new teammates at Wake Forest. I have no doubt that the staff at Wake will take her game to another level." --Alan McAughtry, head coach of U20 Victorian State Team

"I chose Wake Forest University because it balances high academic standards with an elite basketball program that's filled with great people and knowledge. Developing myself physically, mentally and socially both on and off the court has always been incredibly important to me. I feel like Wake Forest has the encouraging community and team environment which will allow me to do this. I know that Wake Forest is somewhere I can have a home away from home, and a team that will become my family." --Alex Sharp
