Mystics' Evelyn Ovner Player of the Month November 2018

Mystics’ Ovner Molten Player of the Month

It’s a November awards double for Manchester Mystics after Evelyn Ovner scooped the Molten WBBL Player of the Month accolade.

The recognition for Ovner came hot on the heels of play-caller Jeff Jones being handed the monthly coaching gong.

During a period that was shortened by the FIBA Women’s EuroBasket 2019 Qualifiers, Ovner caught fire either side of the international break for Mystics.

She enjoyed a hugely productive month after averaging a sparkling 22.7 points per game, her scoring haul helped by a fantastic 54% shooting average from the field.

Ovner also made it a November double-double by going to work on the glass and returning an eye-catching 10.3 rebounds per outing.

She had to fend off challenges from a glut of Hatters personnel to take the honour, with October’s winner Ali Gorrell, Sarah Toeaina, Luiana Livulo and Helen Naylor all in the mix after a great month for their team.
