The London Lions are thrilled to announce the signing of 24-year-old American guard Abby Meyers to their roster.

Meyers started her college basketball career at Princeton University in the 2017/18 season. During her freshman year, Abby helped Princeton to their first Ivy League tournament championship, earning her a spot on the All-Ivy League tournament team.

Throughout her junior year in the 2021-22 season, Meyers took her game to new heights, leading Princeton with 17.9 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. She was a dominant force in the conference, topping the league in three-point percentage, effective field goal percentage, true shooting percentage, and player efficiency rating and was subsequently named Ivy League Player of the Year and earned First Team All-Ivy honours.

Abby transferred to her hometown school, The University of Maryland for the 2022-23 season, where she continued her big performances, contributing 14.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.8 steals per game, while boasting the lowest turnover percentage (10.0) in the Big Ten. Her impact on the court was instrumental in guiding the Terrapins to the Elite Eight at the 2023 NCAA Division I women’s basketball tournament, a feat they hadn’t achieved since 2015. Her exceptional performance earned her a place on the All-Big Ten second team.

The accolades continued to pile up for Meyers as she was drafted in the first round, 11th overall, by the Dallas Wings in the 2023 WNBA draft. Abby is currently playing for the Washington Mystics on a 7-day contract.

Beyond her achievements in college and the professional leagues, Meyers also represented the United States at the 2022 Maccabiah Games in Israel. As the team captain, she displayed her versatility and leadership, averaging 18.4 points per game and helping Team USA secure a gold medal in the championship game.

General Manager of the London Lions, Vanja Cernivec said:
"We’re thrilled to have Abby sign with us for the 2023/24 season. Her versatility, scoring ability and leadership will be huge for us and we can’t wait to see her on court."
