Georgia Jones (Manchester Mystics)

Having already been voted onto the Molten WBBL All-British Team of the Year, the Great Britain guard gets an even bigger thumbs-up for another standout campaign. She was the leader and reference player for Mystics as they won the WBBL Cup and posted their highest-ever league finish. Jones delivered a wonderful 17.8 points, 6.8 assists and 5.2 boards per game during the Regular Season.

Cat Carr (Sevenoaks Suns)

Firmly in the shake-up for the MVP award at the WBBL Trophy Final and a clear leader for Suns in their historical and most successful WBBL campaign to date, Carr has been a colossus for her team. Her leadership and productivity has been simply outstanding, recording a stellar 18.8 points and 5 assists per game in the WBBL Championship and now looking forward to a trip to The o2.

Judit Fritz (Cardiff Met Archers)

While Archers only just managed to squeeze into eighth place to grab a Play-Off spot, the Hungarian forward has still been recognized for her usual sparkling contribution for the Welsh club. Fritz finished as the second highest scorer in the WBBL Championship with a red-hot 21.3 points per game, while also harvesting six boards per outing.

Anne Pedersen (Sevenoaks Suns)

An absolute rock for Sevenoaks, the Danish star has had a standout rookie WBBL season due to her superb consistency and understated work at both ends of the floor. She did grab the limelight as MVP of the WBBL Trophy Final and racked up 16.3 points and 7.7 rebounds per game in the WBBL Championship – shooting a fine 54% from the floor. Now she is off to the WBBL Play-Off Final.

Ashley Harris (Nottingham Wildcats)

A near ever-present in the weekly WBBL All-Star Five due to her phenomenal ability to amass eye-popping numbers, Harris completed a double-double league season. She accumulated a jaw-dropping 25.3 points per game and was top of the scoring chart as a result – also doing the business on the glass with 11.3 rebounds per game.
