WBBL Team of the Week – Week 1
Kastine Evans (Leicester Riders)
The Riders’ guard was always in the thick of the action against Brixton Topcats and hinted she could be one of the players to watch in the WBBL this season. Evans produced an efficient shooting display, making four of seven at the hoop and three of six from behind the arc en-route to 21 points. She also did the all-important dirty work with eight rebounds, as well as snatching four steals.
