We present the Molten WBBL Team of the Year for 2017-18, as voted for by WBBL clubs.
Jen Ashton (Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters)
It’s a wonderful hat-trick for Ashton as she adds to her All-British and All-Defensive honours by making the cut again. The guard has been outstanding for Hatters, sinking 11.1 points per game and leading the WBBL Championship in both assists and steals, averaging 7.2 and 3.5 per outing.
Deanne Hayward (Leicester Riders)
The leadership of Hayward has been outstanding and she adds to her All-British slot by making the grade again. Her consistency and ability to deliver in the clutch have been huge during Riders’ best ever WBBL season. She has contributed 15.2 points, 3.8 boards and 2.9 assists per game.
Cat Carr (Sevenoaks Suns)
It’s been another terrific season for Carr, who has further underlined her status as one of the premier players in the WBBL. She was the central pillar supporting Sevenoaks in their maiden league title, with Carr returning15.3 points, 6 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1.4 steals per game.
Alison Gorrell (Team Northumbria)
With Team Northumbria decimated by injuries for chunks of the campaign, including Gorrell being affected herself, the versatile American carried her team with some monstrous displays. She averaged 18.2 points, 7.6 boards, 4.9 assists and 3.2 steals per game for the north-east franchise.
Ashley Harris (Nottingham Wildcats)
Even though her campaign was curtailed prematurely with a broken foot, Harris was still completely dominant when healthy. She was the joint leader for Weekly All-Star Five appearances and led the WBBL Championship in points at 22.4 per game and rebounds, with 11.7 per outing.
Off the bench -Gianna Woods (Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters), Kate Oliver (Leicester Riders), Onayssa Sbahi (Nottingham Wildcats), Chantelle Pressley (Sevenoaks Suns), Alyesha Lovett (Nottingham Wildcats), Tricia Oakes (Caledonia Pride), Georgia Jones (Manchester Mystics).
