We have no fewer than three debutantes in our starting line-up this week, including an Archers’ player for the first time this season.
Cat Carr (Sevenoaks Suns)
The warning sounds will be ringing for Durham Palatinates after Carr claimed a triple-double in the league meeting which came the weekend before this Sunday’s Cup Final. She claimed 13 points, 11 rebounds and a stunning 13 assists as Suns continued to shine in the title race.
Roshina Rosario (FLT Peterman Sheffield Hatters)
The Portuguese player had what was arguably her finest game in a Hatters’ vest to date as the main architect of the victory against Caledonia Pride. Rosario led the way with a terrific 66% shooting performance that harvested 19 points, along with 9 rebounds and 4 assists.
Cristina Bigica (Cardiff Met Archers)
It was a super weekend for Archers as they breathed life into their Play-Off prospects with an awesome win-double against Oaklands. It was the road victory where Bigica starred most, managing to sink 22 points, as well as completing a double-double with 10 rebounds.
Chelsea Small (Essex Rebels)
It was an important victory for Rebels as they clocked up a fourth league win for the first time in franchise history. Small posted the do-it-all effort in the contest against local rivals Lions after accumulating a highly influential 8 points, 14 boards, 5 blocks and 3 steals.
Abby Rendle (Essex Rebels)
That landmark win was also down to the work of Rendle, who was the other key performer for Essex in the derby match-up. She has shown some nice touches all season, this time producing 22 points from an eye-catching 62% from the floor and also grabbing 9 boards.
Off the bench – Sara Hinriksdottir (Leicester Riders), Lauren Milligan (Oaklands Wolves), Dee Hayward (Durham Palatinates), Jasmine Joyner (Nottingham Wildcats), Samantha Roscoe (Manchester Mystics), Georgia Ohrdorf (Newcastle Eagles), Stella Fouraki (Caledonia Pride).
