After gaining national attention as a 16-year-old, Wilson signed as a development player with the Adelaide Lightning for the 2010–11 season, where she would make her WNBL debut. From Adelaide, Wilson would go onto train with the Australian Institute of Sport. In 2014, Wilson was named the WNBL Rookie of the Year whilst playing with the Townsville Fire.
In May 2015, after two seasons and a championship in Townsville, Wilson would sign with the Sydney Uni Flames for the 2015–16 season. In her time with Sydney, Wilson would go on to win a second WNBL Championship in 2017.
In October 2020, after five years in Sydney, Wilson signed with the Adelaide Lightning for the 2020 season.
Wilson was a well known player and outstanding junior representative from South Australia. Wilson, playing in the guard position, was a key player in the Australian Gems team that claimed bronze at the 2013 FIBA U19 World Championships, averaging 13 points and 7 rebounds per game. She also represented Australia in the FIBA Under 17 World Championships in 2010 and was named Australian Under 20 Championship Most Valuable Player in 2013.
Norwood is thrilled to announced the signing of WNBL and Adelaide Lightning star, Ally Wilson!
Wilson is a 5’9 guard, who, as a 26 year old, now has 8 years WNBL experience after being signed as a development player at 16 years old.
Ally was the 2014 WNBL Rookie of the Year and is also a 2x WNBL Champion. Once with the Townsville Fire and again with the Sydney Uni Flames.
In the 2020 WNBL ‘Bubble’ season, she averaged 11.3ppg, 4.7 rpg and 4.3 apg. She had a season high 23 points against the Bendigo Spirit, including 5 triples in that game.
Wilson not only brings a hard and tough playing style, but compliments that with a dangerous offensive game. Ally will also look to lead our young group on and off the court.
