Baugh powers Top Performers; Paris back in the paint
MUNICH (EuroCup Women) - Good Angels Kosice power forward Victoria Baugh had some slight consolation after being knocked out of European competition, being named Top Performer of the EuroCup Women Quarter-Finals.
After sneaking into the post-season, Good Angles Kosice came within a whisker of continuing their miraculous run for at least one more round, thanks in a large part to power forward Baugh. Across the two legs against Galatasaray, Baugh averaged a 15-point, 10-rebound double-double, for an average efficiency of 26.5.
Once more it is Courtney Paris in the paint, the Hatay center completing another dominant week with a competition-best 19 points and 12 rebounds a game, assuring her Turkish club surged into the Semi-Finals.
Yakin Dogu Universitesi's point guard Courtney Vandersloot was another driving her team into the last four. The naturalised Hungarian displayed just what she can bring to FIBA EuroBasket Women 2017 this summer, averaging 19 points and 11 assists per game against ESBVA-LM, a team possessing a number of players she may face again in the Czech Republic in June.
Paris was joined in the Top Performers by team-mate Natalie Hurst, with the Australian providing no shortage of backup scoring power, averaging 17.5 a game against Wisla Can-Pack.
Despite suffering a heavy loss at the hands of Kayseri, Sarah Michel was a shining light for BLMA, rounding out the EuroCup Women Quarter-Finals Top Performers with 12.5 points and 5 assists an outing.
