WBBL 16-17 All-Star 5: Week 4

There are two debutantes in our line-up this week and a player who racked up one of the biggest performance efficiency valuations in WBBL history.

Georgia Jones (Manchester Mystics)
The Great Britain playmaker sealed her third Weekly All-Star place in the opening four weeks of the new season, in what proved to be a special outing against Pride. Jones scored 15 points and also registered five rebounds and four steals; but it was her six assists that proved most significant as she became the first player in the league to hit the 150 WBBL career assists landmark.

Sierra Schwellenbach (Manchester Mystics)
It’s a debut slot in our fantastic five for Schwellenbach as she joins her Mystics’ colleague. She erupted from behind the three-point line in the match-up against Cardiff Met Archers and harvested 19 points after dropping five triples from just seven attempts. She also finished a great night of work with five rebounds, five steals and four assists.

Abigail Asoro (Team Northumbria)
Last year’s Molten WBBL Play-Off Final MVP cemented her first berth of the new season off the back of a typically impressive line for Northumbria in their game against Oaklands. The versatile Swedish star landed a big double-double of 15 points and 15 rebounds to help her side bounce back from their disappointment against Suns to get back on a winning track.

Jamila Thompson (Leicester Riders)
The Great Britain forward is back for her second appearance of the campaign after she showed her quality for Riders in their hard-fought and defensively dominated win against Barking Abbey Crusaders. It was a real do-it-all effort from Thompsom, who was rampant on the glass with 12 rebounds and also garnered eight points, five assists, four steals and four blocked shots.

Ashley Harris (Nottingham Wildcats)
The Wildcats centre is continuing to dominate as she did last year – not only recording the best performance of the weekend, but also the best of the season so far. Harris accumulated a phenomenal performance efficiency valuation score of 40, via a superb 34-point and 12-rebound double-double against Caledonia Pride in a display which also harvested four steals and three assists.

Off the bench – Steph Gandy (Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters), Tricia Oakes (Caledonia Pride), Alison Gorrell (Team Northumbria), Kata Fulop (Oaklands Wolves), Cat Carr (Sevenoaks Suns), Siobhan Prior (Nottingham Wildcats), Isabel Bueriberi (Manchester Mystics).
