We’ve got some familiar faces, some debutantes and a Week 1 returnee in this week’s line-up.
Georgia Jones (Manchester Mystics)
The Great Britain guard makes her first appearance of the new campaign after lighting it up in the road win at Cardiff Met Archers. Jones harvested an impressive 28 points in the victory, taking Manchester Mystics to 2-0 off the back of that scoring contribution and also added 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals.
Cat Carr (Sevenoaks Suns)
The reigning WBBL MVP hasn’t wasted much time in reminding us all of her quality after conjuring the best display of the season so far as Sevenoaks battered last year’s arch rivals Leicester. Carr was on fire and finished the one-sided contest with a superb line of 22 points (69% shooting), 12 rebounds, 7 assists and 2 steals.
Alison Gorrell (Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters)
We’re just two weeks into the season and it’s already two appearances for Gorrell, who’s showing why Hatters arguably pulled off the coup of the summer by signing her. The all-action star loved being back on her old home floor at Sport Central as she helped outlast Newcastle Eagles with a majestic near quadruple-double of 24 points, 9 boards, 8 assists and 7 steals
Tia Weledji (Caledonia Pride)
Our first new face, Weledji indicated that she will be a towering presence for Pride this season as she claimed her first spot in our starting five as the architect of Caledonia’s victory at BA London Lions. She brought her ‘A-Game’ as she dropped 28 points, including four triples – as well as adding 5 assists and 3 rebounds.
Jasmine Joyner (Nottingham Wildcats)
It was a spectacular debut for the Wildcats’ newest recruit as the NCAA standout went to absolute work in the paint to help her new team sneak a win against Oaklands. Joyner was a colossus and looks set to be a real best under the bucket after amassing a stellar double-double of 20 points and 16 rebounds.
Off the bench – Siobhan Prior (Nottingham Wildcats), Sarah Wagstaff (Cardiff Met Archers), Anneke Schluter (Oaklands Wolves), Tijana Dukic (Cardiff Met Archers), Kara Bonenberger (Newcastle Eagles), Steph Gandy (Newcastle Eagles), Roya Rustamzada (Oaklands Wolves)
