Back-to-back. Nottingham Wildcats are WBBL league champions for the second year running.

Dave Greenaway’s side sealed the title with a 57-52 triumph at home to Team Northumbria to improve to a 14-3 record ahead of their final game.

“I’m very proud of the players and the resiliency they’ve displayed throughout the season,” declared the Wildcats’ play-caller.

“I’m also pleased for the club as winning back-to-back titles is a great accomplishment especially with the league been so competitive.

“It was not one of our best performances but we showed championship pedigree in winning a game when we were below par.

“We shall enjoy and celebrate winning the league but we’ll back to the grit and grind of practice to prepare for the playoff push.”

Ashley Harris racked up a double-double of 15 points and 12 rebounds in the title-clinching win and was delighted to help the Wildcats defend their Championship.

“It feels great to win another Championship, back-to-back,” she enthused.

“I think it’s so awesome being here on a team and in an environment that makes you appreciate what everyone does.

“Finding a home away from home is great and I love playing for this team.

“To be able to win the Championship on our home floor this year with the great support we had was awesome.”
