Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe
6’2 Forward
Simon Fraser University
WNBA New York Liberty

An athletic and versatile forward, Nayo’s basketball resume includes a memorable college career at Simon Fraser University where she reached the NCAA II Sweet 16, while also playing four successful seasons overseas, and representing Team Canada as a member of the Women’s National Team.

At her 1st Olympic appearance in Rio last summer, Nayo played a remarkable tournament: The Forward averaged 7.7 points per game, while shooting an impressive 59.3 % from the field, and grabbing 6 rebounds per game in 22.5 minutes of action.

Nayo is an aggressive rebounder on both ends of the floor. Offensively, she is extremely versatile: scoring in transition, post ups, pick n roll situations, and attacking 1 v.s 1 from mid range. The 2x Defensive Player of the Year combines a high basketball IQ with quick feet and length to shut down opponents.

Efficiency is Nayo’s calling card:
Nayo finished the Australian WNBL as one of the best Forwards in the league. She averaged 16 points and 8.3 rebounds per game, while shooting 53 % from the field.

She signed in the French 1st division with Flammes Carolo to finish up the European season and is currently playing with the New York Liberty I WNBA.
