WBBL All-Star Five – Week 5

There are some new faces in our line-up this week as a couple of players secure their first ever berth.

Giulia Simioni (Team Northumbria)
One of those who had not previously found her way into our fab five is the Team Northumbria guard and the debutante books her place after taking the north-east club into the WBBL Cup Quarter-Finals. Simioni fired 19 points and recorded a stellar double-double with 11 assists against Durham.

Alison Gorrell (Team Northumbria)
Gorrell also erupted in the derby clash against Palatinates at Sport Central with an all-action performance. She finished the contest with a majestic line after accumulating 23 points, 9 rebounds, a fantastic 9 steals and super 7 assists, in one of the best displays of the 2017-18 campaign so far.

Steph Gandy (Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters)
The experienced Gandy is back in our fantastic five once again after leading Hatters in an epic battle against arch rivals, Nottingham Wildcats. The former GB international was highly influential in keeping Hatters perfect, sinking 24 points in the contest and also harvesting 6 rebounds and 4 assists.

Big congrats to this weeks starters! #BritishBasketball

Judit Fritz (Sevenoaks Suns)
A major summer pickup for Suns, the Hungarian forward makes her first appearance of the campaign in our line-up after starring in a fine comeback success at Leicester. Fritz torched Riders with 22 points from a stunning 10 of 14 shooting effort and added 6 assists and 4 rebounds.

Rachel Morris (Oaklands Wolves)
It’s a first ever All-Star Five slot for Morris, which comes off the back of her telling contribution in the dramatic and sensational overtime WBBL Cup triumph at BA London Lions. The frontcourt standout recorded 14 points from an excellent 70% shooting and also amassed a double-double with 17 rebounds.

Off the bench – Evelyn Ovner (Team Northumbria), Sarah Thomson (Caledonia Pride), Ashley Harris (Nottingham Wildcats), Merissa Quick (Cardiff Met Archers), Alex Smith (Leicester Riders), Urysla Cotton (BA London Lions), Nicolette Fong Lyew Quee (Durham Wildcats).
