In 2012/13, Jesse Wagstaff continued to develop in his role as one of the NBL’s most potent sixth man. His scoring ability would often win games for the ‘Cats while his negating style of defence frustrated opponents. In December, Wagstaff had his highest scoring game of the season, picking up 20 to go along with seven rebounds. He averaged 10.7 points per game for the season, 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists. Wagstaff also represented Australia in the Sino Games against China at the conclusion of the NBL season.
Raised in Canberra, Wagstaff attended college in the USA at Metro State University before returning to Australia in 2009 where he was signed by the Perth Wildcats. In his first season at the club, he was a part of the 2010 championship winning team and was also named the NBL’s Rookie of the Year. In 2012, Wagstaff was awarded the league's Best Sixth Man as he came off the bench to replace club legend Shawn Redhage. Throughout his NBL career, Wagstaff has averaged 10.0 points, 1.1 assists and 3.9 rebounds.
