Our latest look at WBBL picks for best of the week.
Georgia Jones (Leicester Riders)
It’s been a good couple of weeks for the Riders’ playmaker after Jones helped her team to ease to a much needed victory against Manchester Mystics, off the back of posting two big wins with Great Britain. The guard contributed 22 points, including four triples and also grabbed five boards and three assists.
Dee Hayward (Leicester Riders)
It’s a debut starting slot in our line-up for the Aberdeenshire native who was also hugely important for Riders in their triumph against the Mystics. Hayward posted her best shooting display of the season to lead her team in scoring via a dazzling 10 of 13 from the field as she garnered a terrific 27 points.
Fiona O’Dwyer (Team Northumbria)
The forward finds herself with a starting berth for the fifth time this season and rides into a rather select club by doing so. She starred in her side’s weekend win double against Archers and Hatters. She put up a massive double-double of 24 points and 13 rebounds against Cardiff, along with three assists and two blocks.
Abiola Wabara (Barking Abbey Crusaders)
The veteran experience of the Italian frontcourt star proved to be priceless for Barking Abbey as they jumped past Brixton Topcats in last weekend’s London derby clash. Wabara brought the noise in the paint with a trademark warrior-like performance that corralled an excellent game-high 21 points, to keep Crusaders in the top four of the standings.
Ashley Harris (Nottingham Wildcats)
The Wildcats’ center has been on fire of late and enjoyed a superb February which was wrapped up with another monstrous double-double in the match-up against Cardiff Met Archers. In what proved to be the best display of the weekend, Harris amassed a majestic 27 points and 16 rebounds to grab her fifth starting place of the campaign.
Off the bench – Nicola Welling (Manchester Mystics), Kate Butters (Cardiff Met Archers), Jenaya Wade-Fray (Brixton Topcats), Imani Whittington (Barking Abbey Crusaders), Nicolette Fong Lyew Quee (Team Northumbria), Amber Stokes (Nottingham Wildcats), Steph Gandy (Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters).
