WBBL 16-17 All Star 5: Week 7

Our dual season leaders are featured once again and there’s a debutante too.

Georgia Jones (Manchester Mystics)
It’s a staggering fifth appearance in the first seven weeks of the campaign for the Mystics point guard after she headed into the Great Britain camp in great form. Jones helped Mystics to post one of the most eye-opening results in the WBBL’s short history as they hammered the defending league champions. She garnered an all-action 20 points, six rebounds, six assists, three steals and a block on a memorable night for the hosts.

Steph Gandy (Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters)
No stranger to our line-up, Gandy is back once again after leading Hatters to a precious road win at Sevenoaks Suns as the visitors from Yorkshire extracted revenge against their recent WBBL conquerors. She was instrumental in a hard-fought victory with 26 points in a phenomenal 12 of 15 shooting effort, which was accompanied by four assists, three steals and two rebounds.

Nicola Welling (Manchester Mystics)
It’s a first appearance of the season for the forward who remains a real anchor for Mystics as they continue their blistering opening to the new campaign. Welling also starred in the astonishing 32-point victory against Wildcats as she registered a stellar eight of nine from the field en-route to 21 points. Her stat line was even more impressive when she also came up with five boards, three assists and a steal.

Brittany Winborne (Westfield health Sheffield Hatters)
The American forward once again showed her power in the paint as she helped Hatters to grind their way past Sevenoaks and much of that was down to her hard and relentless work on the glass. Winborne was a beast on the boards as she completed a double-double with an eye-popping 21 rebounds going alongside a smart 10 points under the basket.

Ashley Harris (Nottingham Wildcats)
There’s still no stopping the centre as she helped Wildcats erase the shock of their huge league loss to Mystics by ensuring that Team Northumbria felt the backlash in the WBBL Cup Quarter-Finals. Harris amassed a monumental double-double of 22 points and 22 rebounds against the north-east side, which was the best performance of the entire weekend and it delivered her a fifth appearance of the campaign.

Off the bench – Amy Browne (Manchester Mystics), Kristina Benic (Nottingham Wildcats), Jamila Thompson (Leicester Riders), Alison Gorrell (Team Northumbria), Ta’Yani Clark (Sevenoaks Suns), Judit Fritz (Cardiff Met Archers), Alex Smith (Leicester Riders)
