Riders duo of Taylor O’Brien and Rayven Peeples were named to the Women’s British Basketball League Team of the Week!
The Riders took a 110-64 road win against the Cardiff Met Archers, and the American pair showed out with a combined 45 points and 19 rebounds in the game.
O’Brien led the way with 26 points, six rebounds and three assists, finishing with a game-high +/- of 35.
She was backed by Peeples, who continued her league-leading dominance on the glass with 19 points and 13 rebounds, shooting 81% from the field.
It’s Peeples’ second nod for Team of the Week, following her week one 18 point double-double performance against Manchester Giants.
The Riders are back in action on Saturday, taking on Nottingham Wildcats at 4:30 pm at the Morningside Arena.
Tickets for the following Riders men’s game against Manchester Giants are also valid for the women’s game, so come down and get behind the team!
