All-Star Five – Week 15

It was a fiercely competitive pool of performances this past weekend as we resumed action in the wake of the recent international break.

Georgia Jones (Manchester Mystics)
Manchester swept the Wolves aside from the tip and Jones caught the headlines by becoming only the third player in WBBL history to move past 1,500 league points. She accumulated 21 of them to achieve the feat, plus a wonderful 8 rebounds and 7 assists.

Asha Thomas (FLT Peterman Sheffield Hatters)
The Hatters were too strong for Nottingham Wildcats as they continued to chase down a top four spot in the league. Thomas inspired the Yorkshire side to a comfortable win against Wildcats, with an all-action 18 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals.

Congratulations to Asha Thomas of Sheffield Hatters Basketball Club Georgia Jones and Sara Djassi of Manchester Mystics…
