Busch scoops first Molten WBBL Coach of the Month gong

Len Busch has been recognised for leading Sevenoaks Suns to a perfect start to the 2018-19 campaign by being crowned Molten WBBL Coach of the Month.

The reigning champions have tipped off the defence of their title by winning their first five games of the new season during the award period.

Suns opened their account with a crushing 93-35 road win at newcomers Essex Rebels and then made an even bigger statement of intent by shooting down last year’s closest rivals Leicester Riders 85-49.

They cruised past Oaklands Wolves 78-60 in a south-east derby and wrapped up October with arguably their two most eye-catching victories.

They beat fellow title frontrunners Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters 76-67 and then Manchester Mystics 65-61 in a tense road win.

Busch continued where he left off last season, having been named the Ed Percival Molten WBBL Coach of the Year for 2017-18.
