After three tough losses, Ballarat Rush coach Eric Hayes decided it was time to try a different approach and changed his starting line-up.

As a result, Taylah Wynne was rewarded for her hard work with her first start of the season and second in the South East Australian Basketball League.

She jumped at the opportunity by producing her best performance for Ballarat Skoda Rush in a victory over Albury Wodonga on Saturday, collecting 16 points and four rebounds.

The young shooter proved she thrives off a challenge.

“We walked into the change rooms, I saw my name on the board and I did get a bit nervous but it was really great… I loved it,” she said.

“I gained a lot of confidence from that game, but I just went out there trying to do my role.

“Eric wanted me to play the point guard and do that well, so that is what I really tried to do and then the scoring just came with it.”
