Big V’s newest feature – the Rolling Team of the Year – sees an updated list of the top 12 men and women throughout the course of the season.
It’s been another week with a some moving and shaking within the Big V 2019 Rolling Team of the Year. However there are also some absolute locks after 15 rounds of basketball, who don’t look like moving anytime soon!
Men – Round 15
Chauncey Orr (Bulleen D1M)
Last Game: 32pts, 12-20FG, 11reb, 2ast, 4stl
Orr makes his 13th appearance in the the Big V Rolling Team of the Year, and every single one of these has been starting. What an absolute jet!
Dylan Shorne (North East D2M)
Last Game: 21pts, 9-18FG, 21reb, 1ast, 1blk
A 20+ double-double earns Shorne a promotion to start in just his second week in the Big V Rolling Team of the Year.
Xavier Johnson-Blount (Warrnambool D1M)
Last Game: 28pts, 10-26FG, 4reb, 5ast, 2stl, 2blk
This is Johnson-Blount’s fifth week in the team and fourth consecutive week starting. It’s a bit rare to not see a 40+ game from XJB of a weekend, but hey, we still think this showing is not too shabby!
Konor Kulas (Werribee CM)
Last Game: 24pts, 7-13FG, 10reb, 8ast, 3stl
For Kulas’ 13th appearance in the Rolling Team of the Year he’s strung together back-to-back starts – a near triple-double (just two assists short) will do that!
Dillon Stith (McKinnon CM)
Last Game(s): 35pts, 12-19FG, 15reb, 5ast, 1stl, 3blk & 23pts, 10-14FG, 13reb, 3ast, 2blk
Stith makes it now three consecutive weeks in the starting five after another huge weekend of back-to-back double-doubles.
Steve Coffey (RMIT D2M)
Last Game: 24pts, 9-22FG, 14reb, 7ast, 2stl
Well we did say he loves consistency – that’s now three weeks of near identical figures from Coffey! This solid double-double means he’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
Jake Heath (Blackburn CM)
Last Game(s): 28pts, 8-16FG, 6reb, 9ast, 1stl, 1blk & 22pts, 6-13FG, 7reb, 6ast, 3stl
A great all-round performance from Heath this week, across his two Round 15 games. With performances like this he’ll be looking to start very soon!
Trae Young (Corio Bay CM)
Last Game(s): 10pts, 3-14FG, 9reb, 6ast, 1blk & 19pts, 7-18FG, 4reb, 10ast, 1stl
This is Young’s sixth week in the team and he was close to missing out on selection, however almost-back-to-back double-doubles did the talking for him.
Troyce Manassa (Southern Peninsula D2M)
Last Game: 17pts, 8-20FG, 6reb, 2ast, 2stl, 1blk
This is Manassa’s 14th time in the team but it’s a shock to see him dropped to the bench! We’re sure he won’t be down here for long however…
Mike Anderson (Keilor CM)
Last Game(s): 29pts, 12-21FG, 8reb, 6ast, 2stl & 19pts, 7-15FG, 7reb, 3ast, 1stl, 1blk
Anderson returns to the team for the 13th time this year on the back of two solid outings in Round 15 – he was only dropped last week due to the fact that he did not play.
David Shepard (Werribee CM)
Last Game: 49pts, 18-24FG, 6reb, 1ast
Shepard has put up an incredible 106 individual points over the past two rounds, earning himself a well-deserved call-up to the Rolling Team of the Year.
Corey Standerfer (Chelsea CM)
Last Game(s): 40pts, 13-24FG, 6reb, 8ast, 3stl & 23pts, 6-18FG, 4reb, 4ast, 3stl
After finally getting the call-up to the Rolling Team of the Year, only to be dropped again the following week, Standerfer is back, after impressive back-to-back performances in Round 15.
Kraig Shields (Sherbrooke D2M)
Last game(s): 10pts, 5-8FG, 2reb, 2ast, 1blk & 2pts, 1-5FG, 6reb, 1ast
Ish Sanders (Sunbury D1M)
Last game: 17pts, 7-19FG, 4reb, 1ast
Aaron Harrison (Latrobe City D1M)
Last game: 23pts, 10-20FG, 8reb, 4ast, 3stl
Women – Round 15
Amanda Fioravanti (Latrobe City D1W)
Last Game(s): 17pts, 8-16FG, 12reb, 2ast, 1stl, 2blk & 8pts, 3-11FG, 21reb, 3ast
It’s Fioravanti’s fourth consecutive week in the team and her second consecutive start. Her all-round performance was not as consistent across two games this week, however still put up some huge numbers to hold her spot.
Darcy Saunders (Craigieburn D1W)
Last Game(s): 31pts, 13-21FG, 7reb, 2stl & 4pts, 2-15FG, 10reb, 3ast, 2blk
It’s Saunders’ eighth week in the team and second consecutive starting. Whilst her shooting was not on point in her second game of the weekend, she did enough around the court in the first game to keep her spot starting.
Rachel Bell (Whittlesea CW)
Last Game: 33pts, 14-30FG, 8reb, 2ast, 1stl
Bell earns a call up back to start at the expense of her Pacers’ teammate, Dani Reinwald. Another huge points game for Bell.
Alysha Lovett (Mildura D1W)
Last Game(s): 34pts, 14-21FG, 19reb, 3ast, 5stl, 2blk & 46pts, 16-30FG, 14reb, 3ast
The broken record starts again: Alyesha Lovett is absolutely ridiculous! Would you even believe when looking at those stats for her second game that Mildura didn’t come away with the win?!
Erin Bollmann (Keilor CW)
Last Game: 27pts, 11-19FG, 15reb, 6ast, 5stl, 1blk
Bollmann is promoted back to the starting five for her 14th appearance in the Rolling Team of the Year, after apparently not enjoying being dropped to the bench last week! A superb all-round performance from her this week.
Malika Jackson (Western Port D1W)
Last Game: 13pts, 6-16FG, 11reb, 6ast, 1stl, 4blk
Whilst her shooting wasn’t as accurate this week, a solid double-double and strong all-round performance does enough to hold her spot for another week.
Deslyn Applewhaite (Sherbrooke D2W)
Last Game: 22pts, 9-17FG, 8reb, 2ast, 3stl
This makes four consecutive appearances in the Rolling Team of the Year for Applewhaite. Consistency is key for Applewhaite over the past month or so, even though we know she’s capable of so much more!
Sarah Halejian (Casey CW)
Last Game: 22pts, 9-16FG, 12reb, 10ast, 1stl, 1blk
An insane triple-double in Round 15 from Halejian earns herself a spot back in the Rolling Team of the Year. If she keeps this form up she’ll be starting again in no time.
Sammie Simmons (Mornington D2W)
Last Game: 25pts, 9-21FG, 10reb, 1ast, 1stl
Another solid double-double sees Simmons hold her spot in the Rolling Team of the Year for the second consecutive week.
BreAnna Brock (Hume City CW)
Last Game: 27pts, 9-16FG, 15reb, 3ast, 1stl, 1blk
After being dropped only due to the fact that she didn’t play in Round 14, Brock charges back onto the bench this week. She’ll be looking to start as we edge closer to finals.
Nyesha Sims (Collingwood D2W)
Last Game: 24pts, 11-26FG, 12reb, 1ast
Once again unlucky not to be starting this week. Incredibly this is Sims’ 15th appearance in the Big V Rolling Team of the Year, meaning she hasn’t missed a call-up all season!
Dani Reinwald (Whittlesea CW)
Last Game: 5pts, 1-6FG, 4reb, 1blk
An uncharacteristic poor performance from Reinwald this week sees her dropped to the bench. However it’s her 12th appearance in the team for the season, so we can’t imagine a repeat of this in Round 16!
Alisia Jenkins (Werribee CW)
Last Game: DNP
Jada Buggs (Craigieburn D1W)
Last Game(s): 5pts, 2-8FG, 7reb, 4ast & 2pts, 1-7FG, 5reb, 2ast
