2001 - PLAY OFF CHAMPIONS
PLACE OF BIRTH:
During his 11-year tenure with the Riders, GB guard Conner Washington has won everything there is to win in the BBL. He has 14 pieces of silverware to his name, after adding three more in last season’s treble-winning year.
Conner first entered professional basketball at the age of 17, playing in his home city of Milton Keynes for the Lions in the BBL. After his rookie season, he signed with the Riders and attended Loughborough College.
Washington would become an integral part of the Riders successes over the next six years. In the 2016/17 season, Conner made the BBL all-defensive first team and all-British first team. He developed into a dangerous perimeter threat, averaging over 40% from three in three separate seasons.
Washington is respected around the BBL as an intelligent veteran, playing to an elite standard on both ends. He has earned Molten BBL Defensive Team of the Year honours on three separate occasions.
Playing in his 15th year as a pro, Conner brings a wealth of experience to the Riders roster. His championship pedigree is a vital component to Rob Paternostro’s side.
