WBBL All-Star 5: Week 6

We have several GB vest-wearers both in our line-up and off the bench this week, including someone who becomes only the second player to feature in our fantastic five for a fourth time in 2016-17.

Georgia Jones (Manchester Mystics)
The blistering debut campaign with Mystics continues for the Great Britain playmaker as she becomes our co-leader with her fourth starting appearance. Her latest slot comes off the back of 23 points and five assists at Barking Abbey, which helped Mystics into the WBBL Cup Semi-Finals.

Amy Browne (Manchester Mystics)
Having made her debut last week, Browne keeps her starting place after continuing a rich vein of form which has taken Mystics into the last four of the WBBL Cup. She torched Crusaders with 25 points as she dropped four triples from five attempts – as well as pulling down seven rebounds.

Ta’Yani Clark (Sevenoaks Suns)
The familiar face of Clark drops back into our starting line-up for the first time this season after leading Suns in a dazzling WBBL Cup success at Hatters, which carried Sevenoaks into the Semi-Finals. She finished with the best performance of the week after harvesting 20 points, seven rebounds and a sensational seven steals.

Cat Carr (Sevenoaks Suns)
After featuring during our second week, the versatile Carr returns after a typically influential effort against Hatters which helped catapult Suns into the last four of the WBBL Cup. She dropped 20 points with three of four from downtown, as well as mustering four rebounds, three assists and two steals.

Jamila Thompson (Leicester Riders)
The power and athleticism of the Great Britain forward was evident again as she played the pivotal role in carrying Riders to the WBBL Cup Semi-Finals. She racked up a big double-double of 10 points and 16 boards against Wolves, while also handing out three assists and swatting three shots.

Off the bench – Brittany Winborne (Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters), Deanne Hayward (Leicester Riders), Kyla Nelson (Oaklands Wolves), Gabby Nikitinaite (Sevenoaks Suns), Anne Pederson (Sevenoaks Suns), Kata Fulop (Oaklands Wolves), Kadri Uiga (Leicester Riders).
