Check out GB legend Jo Leedham-Warner scoring for the first time in the WBBL after making a highly anticipated debut for London Lions.
Leedham-Warner finished with four points and three rebounds in 16 minutes of the team’s dominant 85-53 victory over Leicester Riders at the Copper Box, on Sunday.
The 33-year-old completed an impressive return to the court for the first time since 2020 having become a mother for the first time last year.
