Imports Emilee Harmon and Lamar Mallory have taken out MVP honours at the Albury-Wodonga Bandits end of season awards.
Harmon's MVP nod caps a terrific return to the Border for the highly-skilled power forward, after she was named in the All-SEABL second team as well.
So often the engine room for the Lady Bandits, Harmon averaged 21.5 points and 9 rebounds for the season, shooting at an impressive clip of 50 per cent.
She also led the league in offensive boards, and finished in the top five for made free throws.
Consistency and improvement were the hallmarks of Mallory's season.
Also in his second season with the Bandits after some time in Europe, Mallory 19 points and 9.9 rebounds per game, as well as improving his shooting out to the three point line.
After struggling through something of a mid-season slump, the athletic power-forward dominated towards the tail end of the season.
Mallory's points came at a highly efficient 60 per cent on the season, an impressive mark considering he made a concerted effort to expand his shooting range coming in to the season.
Fellow import Rashad Hassan took out the Allen McCowan Memorial Award, while point-forward Tevin Jackson won the Lance Collins Memorial Award.
Rising star Casey Ardern won the Lady Bandits Most Improved award after taking on a starting role while Emma Mahady was out injured.
The teenage guard never looked out of place against elite competition, despite giving up a sizeable height advantage.
Fellow teenage guard Mitch Donovan won the Bandits’ Coaches Award for his standout rookie season.
Donovan stepped up with star shooting guard Daniel Sepokas out for most of the season, frequently shouldering responsibility as a sixth man and outperforming expectations set for him entering the year.
Megan Quinn took out the Lady bandits Coaches Award, her experience alongside Harmon and Molly Rice proving invaluable as the Lady Bandits battled a raft of injuries throughout their 2018 campaign.
Rachel Wright won Clubperson of the Year.
