Following her fourth Player of the Week award yesterday, Liz Cambage of the Deakin Melbourne Boomers has claimed a league-high fifth nomination in Team of the Week after tallying 38 points, 13 rebounds, two assists and a steal in a win over the Caps.

Two guards that are also making a habit of Team of the Week awards are Perth Lynx duo Sami Whitcomb (20.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists and two 2.5 steals per game) and Courtney Williams (20.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 2.5 steals per game).

It is their third and fourth nomination respectively as well as the second consecutive round that they have been nominated alongside each other.

A consistent performance across two victories that has kept the Jayco Dandenong Rangers well in the hunt for a finals spot, Carley Mijovic has been named for the second time this season after averaging 17 points, 9.5 rebounds, one assists, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks.

Joining those four is JCU Townsville Fire centre Suzy Batkovic who is having another outstanding season as she chases a sixth MVP.

Named nine times in 2016/17, Batkovic has earned her fourth Team of the Week award this year after averaging 22.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, three assists, 1.5 steals and a block in Round 9.
