WEABL All Time Stats Leaders – 2019/20 Update

Now the 2019/20 regular season is in the books, we’re taking a look back at some of the best performances from WEABL players this season. How do those performances stack up throughout the history of the league? And who holds the current WEABL records for stats like points per game, best three point percentage, efficiency and more?

After teaming up with Dave Owen Basketball and the incredible voluntary content he creates outside of his time with Basketball England, we can take a look at some of the best performances through the years, adding in this year’s efforts to see how they compare.

2019/20 saw a number of new entries into the best overall single season averages across the eight different categories tracked. Derby’s Kenny Hamilton and Oaklands’ Louise Rouse in particular had exceptional seasons, both on offence and defence, which are worthy of analysis.

Hamilton’s 15.4 rebounds per game are 2nd all time by a WEABL player, but the talented youngster went one better than that on the assists front, with her 5.9 dimes per game the best ever in league history. Nabbing 5.3 steals per game (2nd all time), Hamilton settled on a 21.7 efficiency rating this season, good for 6th all time.

Rouse was also no stranger to lighting up the stat sheet this season either, with the Oaklands’ star recording 15.6 rebounds per game (best ever), 2.4 blocks per game (3rd all time), and 23.9 efficiency (3rd all time).

“It’s been a tough year for the team with no wins despite a few close matches,” said Rouse, reflecting on her season.

“We have developed over the year and shown some effective play phases but just haven’t sustained it.

“I feel I’ve developed my game significantly from last season, I’ve focused on being more controlled around the rim and expanding my outside game. Playing up in the WBBL has definitely helped when I play WEABL games, I’ve had great support from my coaches and teammates between the two programs.”

Other notable performances from 2019/20 include:

  • Nottingham’s Mariam Olawoyin – 36.5 adjusted efficiency rating (which is overall efficiency x team win %) which is good for 3rd all time
  • Sheffield’s Abbey Whitehouse – 22.3 points per game (2nd all time)
  • Charnwood’s Jennah Mohamed – 50% 3-pt percentage (best ever)
  • Manchester’s Jade Mbam – 5.9 assists per game (2nd all time to Hamilton due to fewer games played)
  • Derby’s Neve Marvill – 5.4 steals per game (best ever)
  • Barking’s Tamara Fournillier-Onadeko – 5.1 steals per game (3rd all time)
  • Charnwood’s Alex Baker – 3.8 blocks per game (best ever).

It has been a very strong season for some the WEABL’s finest, with multiple players putting up performances that rank up there with some of the best the league has seen.
