I think the individual awards are all acceptable. I would rejig the all-WNBL teams a bit:

1) Tiff Mitchell in first team. Kristy Wallace in second team.
2) While I love seeing Jade Melbourne in the second team, I think you can make a very strong argument that Steph Reid deserves to be in there over her.
3) I think Keely Froling was a little hard done by. I'd put her in over Nicholson because Nicholson has missed five games but this one is arguable.
