Leonard was named finals MVP after posting 13 points, seven assists, five rebounds and four steals in the London Lions’ dominating 70-45 win against the Sevenoaks Suns. The game was played in front of a WBBL-record crowd of 10,928 at London’s 02 Arena.

Playing in all 34 games, Leonard averaged 11.3 points, 8.4 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 2.6 steals.
It was the second consecutive season in which Leonard and the Lions won the WBBL Playoff Final.
Leonard played at CU from 2015-19 and is the program’s all-time assists leader, with 664. She’s eighth in career points (1,635). She averaged 14.3 points, 5.8 assists and 2.1 steals at CU while twice being named first-team All-Pac-12.
