Our latest look at the WBBL’s picks for best of the week.
Jenaya Wade-Fray (Brixton Topcats)
It was a memorable final day of the regular season for the South Londoners as they clinched they win they needed to make it into the Quarter-Finals. Wade-Fray was at the heart of their vital win against Manchester Mystics as she poured in a superb 30 points, including five triples to go with four boards, two steals and an assist.
Steph Gandy (Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters)
The Hatters could once again prove the team to beat and enter the post-season all the better for Gandy firing on all cylinders. She ensured Wildcats didn’t go all season unbeaten in the league by helping Sheffield clinch a dramatic win with an all-action 22 points, seven rebounds, three steals and two assists.
Judit Fritz (Cardiff Met Archers)
The Hungarian hangs on to her starting spot to secure back-to-back appearances after once again starring for the Welsh side. Cardiff won their first road game in the WBBL Championship this season as they took down Barking Abbey behind an Archers’ season-high and spectacular 37 points from Fritz, in what was the best performance of the weekend.
Julie Page (Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters)
The former Great Britain star finds herself back in our fantastic five after playing the leading role for Hatters as they sneaked past arch rivals Nottingham. She wreaked havoc in the paint to collect a dazzling double-double of 14 points and 16 rebounds as Hatters finished the regular season on a high with momentum for the forthcoming Play-Offs.
Diana Voynova (Team Northumbria)
The Bulgarian centre was the leading light for Team Northumbria in their match-up with Leicester Riders as they finished runners-up in the WBBL Championship. Voynova shot a nice 58% from the floor to finish with 16 points, as well as harvesting seven rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot to grab an All Star starting berth for the third time.
