Loreto’s Asobirionwu name WEABL Player of the Week

Loreto College and Manchester Mystics’ Lina Asobirionwu has been named as the latest Player of the Week in the WEABL after an impressive performance for Loreto Mystics Basketball Academy in Week 4.

The 2000-born forward put up 32 points along with 21 rebounds and seven steals to lead her side to a 95-55 victory over Moulton.

“Thank you team,” Asobirionwu declared. “It’s a team award and I am really happy for our whole team and the win that was the most important on the day.

“Also, I would like to thank our coach Ollie, who always tries to motivate us and take the best out of us as young student-athletes.”

Head Coach Aurimas Ollie Verbukas added: “Lina has approached this game in a very professional manner at practice in preparation and executed well during the game.

“She is not just a good basketball player, but also a good character on and off the floor. I am and all the team and are very proud of her and this reward is more than deserved.”

Loreto return to action with a road trip to Nottingham this Wednesday.
