Capping a great year: WNBL PotW

THERE are weeks when it is nightmarishly difficult and others where it is a piece of cake. Settle back with a slice of gateau as our final WNBL Player of the Week for 2018 could not have been easier.

Melbourne Boomers import and already a two-time PotW award winner, Lindsay Allen was right up there, hitting 27 points in the overtime win at Bendigo, including the monster 3-point banker which forced the game to overtime.

Asia Taylor of Perth averaged 19 points and 12 boards as her Lynx split a win over Dandenong with a loss at Adelaide. And Lightning came home on the back of Nia Coffey's 21-point, nine-rebound effort.

All those performances were worthy of consideration and certainly in contention.

But none came close to the two games WNBA star and Canadian international Kia Nurse delivered.

She had a round-high 33 points at 54 percent as Canberra snuffed out the Fire, including seven 3-pointers from 13 attempts.

Nurse knocked down six 3-pointers out of nine en route to 26 points in the rout of the Rangers before a knee collision saw her prematurely exit the match with seven minutes left.

But for the record, in two Capitals cruises, Nurse averaged 29.5 points at 56 percent, with 13-of-22 threes, that's 59 percent, 3.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.5 steals. She also blocked a shot against Dandenong, just for the hell of it.

Clearly and comfortably, Kia Nurse concluded 2018 as the year's last Player of the Week.B.O.T.I. WNBL PLAYER OF THE WEEK
