All-Star Five – Week 12

It’s our first starting five of the new calendar year and we also bring you a talented bench as well to tip-off 2019!

Rebecca Navarro (Leicester Riders)
The talented Navarro grabs her place for helping Riders bounce back from their Cup Semi-Final exit. She poured in 27 points against Archers, going a super 11 of 13 and also racking up 7 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals.

Alison Gorrell (Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters)
A game-winner in waiting during any contest she plays, Gorrell came up with an MVP showing for Hatters against Nottingham. She netted 23 points, hauled down 10 rebounds and also added 3 assists and 3 steals to take down Wildcats. 

Samantha Roscoe (Manchester Mystics)
It was a nail-biting and precious 1-point win for Mystics in the North-East against Durham, with Roscoe causing big problems for the Palatinates defence. She finished with an all-action 14 points, 6 rebounds, 4 big blocks and 3 assists.

Jess Good (Sevenoaks Suns)
Good lived up to her surname with an impressive showing for Suns to propel them to their first-ever WBBL Cup Final. The Aussie was a Semi-Final difference-maker against Riders with a sweet 18 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists. 

Loren Christie (BA London Lions)
The British teenager had an excellent outing for Lions as they won their South-East derby clash at Oaklands Wolves. Christie came up with the goods after posting a near double-double of 17 points and 9 rebounds.
