Jewell Lloyd on the other hand has failed to come up with the goods yet again as she disappointed the fans with just 3 points and 2 assists. Briann January who plays as the forward might just get one more chance before getting benched with the forward having abysmal numbers.

Queen Egbo’s performance has blown hot and cold as a result of which the side hasn’t been able to find any rhythm. She has averaged 6.7 rebounds and 1.4 blocks this season. Danielle Robinson has created opportunities but her 3-point conversion of 26.3 needs some improvement.
