WBBL All-Star Five – Week 26

Here it is. It’s our very last All-Star Five line-up of the 2017-18 season.

Deanne Hayward (Leicester Riders)
It’s fitting that a leading contender for the Molten WBBL Team of the Year should find herself in our final fab five of the campaign. The Riders’ star helped Leicester ease past Caledonia Pride and reach the Play-off Semi-Finals with an all-action 17 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals.

Cat Carr (Sevenoaks Suns)
Another player who could well be in the awards shake-up during the next week or so, is the unstoppable Sevenoaks’ standout. Carr was her typical imposing self as she powered Suns into the last four of the Play-Offs by recording 21 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals against Cardiff Met Archers.

Janice Monakana (Nottingham Wildcats)
Monakana certainly took her last chance to seal a debut slot by taking Wildcats past Mystics. After an injury ravaged year, her first appearance comes off the back of digging Nottingham out of a first-half hole, with 16 points from 66% shooting to fire them past Manchester and into the Semi-Finals.

Krisztina Velkey (Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters)
It’s been a while since we saw Velkey in our line-up, having been one of the in-form players earlier in the season. She chose a great time to remind us of her skills, since she was a driving force for Sheffield against Team Northumbria, racking up a 13-point and 12-rebound double-double, as well as 7 assists.

Gianna Woods (Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters)
One of the most consistent and classy players this season, Woods isn’t done just yet with her rookie WBBL campaign. She propelled Hatters into the Play-Off Semi-Finals with a superb effort that witnessed her harvest a stellar 22 points and 13 boards against Northumbria.

Off the bench – Steph Gandy (Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters), Evelyn Ovner (Team Northumbria), Jamila Thompson (Leicester Riders), Rosanna Reyolds (Caledonia Pride), Erin McGarrachan (Leicester Riders), Merissa Quick (Cardiff Met Archers), Robyn Lewis (Caledonia Pride).
