Sevenoaks Suns made it a double on the 2017-18 season with a 69-44 rout of Leicester Riders in the WBBL Play-Offs Final on Sunday afternoon at The O2.

Regular season MVP added another individual honour to her trophy cabinet with 19 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists to be named finals MVP, as Sevenoaks Suns pounced early and never looked back.

The Suns collected their fourth title in two years, the club’s consecutive double, having already secured Championship honours at the end of April.

Chantelle Pressley added 12 points and 9 rebounds, and Judit Fritz joined her in double figures with 10 points.

Sevenoaks exploded out of the gates, racing out to an 18 point advantage by half-time. The Suns put on a defensive clinic in the first 20 minutes, holding the usually free-scoring Leicester Riders to just 22 first-half points.

WBBL Young Player of the Year Holly Winterburn led Riders with 12 points, whilst Erin McGarrahan added 8 points.
