BENDIGO Bank Spirit star Kristi Harrower is the WNBL Player of the Week for round five.
Playing in her 300th game, Harrower was at her play-making best, posting 11 points and 10 assists in the 63-51 victory over Dandenong – scoring her 4000th career point in the process, becoming just the eighth player in WNBL history to do so.
The win elevated Bendigo to a 5-1 record, with Harrower believing the team is now beginning to display the chemistry that could have in a position to repeat last season’s WNBL Championship victory.
“If you look at our group, this is the biggest the Spirit has ever been and it’s so refreshing in a way because now I feel their isn’t so much pressure to score."
The four-time Olympian leads the WNBL in assists at 8.5 per game.
