London Lions 2022 WBBL Championship Title

London Lions have secured the WBBL Championship title for the first time after sealing top spot with a game to spare with their 23rd victory.

Mark Clark’s side complete a domestic treble this season after beating Essex Rebels 91-55 at the Copper Box on Friday to add the regular season title to their triumphs in the WBBL Cup and WBBL Trophy.

Azania Stewart posted a double-double in the win with 16 points and 14 rebounds along with four blocks as the Lions ran out convincing winners with Jo Leedham-Warner and Cassie Breen also in double figures.

The Lions have now won five pieces of silverware inside two seasons with the chance to add another when they defend their playoffs title as the number one seeds next week.

London visit Sevenoaks Suns on Sunday in what now becomes the chance to complete a perfect league campaign as opposed to the anticipated title decider.
