Returning Northern Stars shooter, Maia Wilson has had a memorable career in just a few short years on the main stage. An unstoppable force in the Mount Albert Grammar team for many years, this precocious talent played the entire campaign of her debut ANZ Championship season with the Central Pulse in 2016 before moving back home to play for the Stars in 2017.

Wilson is one of the most accurate shooters in both the ANZ Championship and Premiership competitions and her ability to lose a defender on the baseline and her strong hold in the shooting circle belies her stature.

With her unflappable demeanour in the shooting circle, Maia enjoyed a meteoric rise into the Silver Ferns making her International debut on 2016 against Jamaica.

Maia is a dual international having played basketball for New Zealand while still at school.

In 2017 she shot the New Zealand Under 21 team to glory being part of the gold medal team at the World Youth Cup in Botswana.
