It’s difficult to call which team will finish the season with the women’s league title. The top 3 teams in the league (Lisburn, QUB and Towers) have exchanged points with each other throughout the first half of the season.
Towers have a strong inside presence with Eva McCrory and Leona Gallagher. Lisburn are arguably the deepest team with four Superleague players but they have an obvious weakness in the post. Queen’s University Belfast boast quality guards in Aisling Murray and Ciara O’Neill but their lack of depth has proved costly in close games.
Who is the best player in the women’s league? Which team do you think will come out on top come the end of the season?
