Janice Monakana signs in Sweden to play under Jesper Sundberg

Janice Monakana is heading overseas next season after signing in Sweden’s top-flight with Sodertalje, the club announced.

The GB forward has spent the last three years at Sevenoaks Suns – winning two Finals MVP awards – and will now link up with former Leicester Riders head coach, Jesper Sundberg.

Monakana helped the Suns win four pieces of silverware since joining in the 2018-19 season and became a regular amongst the GB Senior squad.

Monakana predominantly came off the bench in a key role for the Suns and racked up over 600 points in a three and a half year WBBL career following for years at Toledo in the US.

Sundberg left the Riders after leading them to WBBL Cup success last season and joins another former Riders coach in Krumesh Patel as a play-caller in Sweden.
