WSBL Player of the Week – Ali Schwagmeyer (Lakeside Lightning)

Consistent as always, Schwagmeyer put in two solid performances this week to lift her Lakeside Lightning to outright first on the WSBL ladder, with victories coming against South West (94-76) and Rockingham (102-82).

A toiling Slammers team had no answer for Schwagmeyer on Saturday, as she racked up 25 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists in just 26 minutes of play. The tight turnaround on Sunday didn’t detract from Schwagmeyer’s work-rate, pouring in 29 points, 4 rebounds, 6 assists and 6 steals against the Flames at home.

Schwagmeyer’s efficiency across both games was sound, shooting 61% on Saturday and 58% Sunday, with just 2 turnovers per game against her. Lakeside were +37 over the weekend with Schwagmeyer on the court.

Lakeside, as the only undefeated team in the WSBL will now face play away at East Perth on Saturday of ANZAC Round, who are yet to register a win in 2018.
