The player of the month award for December in the local women’s basket-ball competitions was claimed by Loyola’s Brietta Thomas, the MBA said in a statement.

For the player from the United States, this was her first personal acco-lade here in Malta since making her debut for Loyola this season.

In December, Loyola had some fine outings in the national league to confirm their place in the play-offs. Thomas contributed with 133 points as she was the second best scorer in the competition.

She had nine three-pointers to classify as the best shooter from outside the arc for the month.

The American boasts an average of 9.33 rebounds per game and 2.40 steals for every outing she’s had.

Thomas was presented with her award by Martin Ferry on behalf of sponsors You Shop We Ship.
