Fiona O’Dwyer has ensured a Team Northumbria awards double after being handed the Molten WBBL Player of the Month accolade. Her receipt of the illustrious award comes 24 hours after Team Northumbria play-caller Chris Bunten was crowned Molten WBBL Coach of the Month.
O’Dwyer has provided the main thrust for a talented and stacked Team Northumbria side which is yet to taste defeat after starting the new campaign with five successive victories.
Also taking into account the latter half of October when the season first swung into action, O’Dwyer has been a key cog in the wheel for the North-East club due to her all-round influence.
Now in her second year, O’Dwyer has picked up where she left off last season when she emerged as one of the premier players in the WBBL.
So far she has averaged a double-double 14.6 points and 10.6 boards per game – proving herself to be one of the best defensive rebounders around.
She also averaged 2.2 assists per game, while the forward is also one of only a trio of WBBL players to have found themselves in the weekly All Star Five line-up three times so far this season.
Both Team Northumbria Womens and Mens programmes are run as a partnership belween the Eagles Community Foundation and Team Northumbria.
