Richards named WNBL’s Player of Round 12

January 22, 2024 | Sydney Flames news

Sydney Flames’ Didi Richards has been recognised for her exceptional play over the past week by being named the WNBL’s Player of Round 12.

The Baylor alum earned the honour on the back of huge performances in victories against Adelaide (18 points, eight rebounds, three assists and two steals) and Canberra (16 points, four boards, one steal and one block).


These also secured the Houston-born forward a spot in the WNBL’s Team of the Week, the second time she’s done so in WNBL24.

Joining Richards in the Team of the Round is fellow Flame Cayla George (who also made it in round 11), Southside’s Leilani Mitchell, Bendigo’s Mehyrn Kraker and Adelaide’s Isabelle Bourne.

The Flames will look to make it four wins on the trot on Thursday, when they host the Flyers at Quaycentre from 8pm AEDT – with tickets still available here.
