Leicester Riders have added Jen Ashton to the WBBL roster ahead of the 2018/19 WBBL season.

Great Britain’s Jen Ashton will suit up for the Leicester Riders this season in the WBBL following an award winning season with the Hatter last year.

Ashton was named in the WBBL Team the Year, as well as in the Defensive Team of the Year and the British Team of the Year for the 2017/18 season leading the league in assists (7.0) and steals (3.2).

Alongside the league leading numbers, Ashton averaged an impressive 10.3 points and 5.1 rebounds per game.

Coach Sundberg is excited about the addition ahead of the WBBL season.

“I’m really excited about Jen joining the team. She was one of the best players in the league the previous season.

“A very good floor leader with great vision and knowledge of the game.

Jen is a great person who will contribute to our program both on and off the court.”
