Paris once more on top in European farewell

MUNICH (EuroCup Women) – Courtney Paris’ European soiree may have come to an end on Friday evening, but it was not before she made one more Top Performers' appearance.

The Hatay center was once again stealing the limelight in the Semi-Finals, playing nearly every minute in Hatay’s home-and-away clash with Bellona Agu, averaging 19 points and 13.5 rebounds across the two games, for an average efficiency of 28.5.

From the side that ended Hatay’s run in Europe, only Jelena Dubljevic made the Top Performer’s team. The Montenegrin linchpin scored 14.5 points per game for Finals-bound Bellona Agu.

One of the biggest surprises this season, Yakin Dogu Universitesi, continued their march with a comprehensive series win over Galatasaray. Playing a major role in their success has been their backcourt, particularly guard Courtney Vandersloot. In the Semi-Finals, the naturalized Hungarian playmaker averaged 12.5 points and 13.5 assists.

Her teammate Kayla McBride joins her in the Top Performers, thanks to an offensive output that acquired 25 points a game.

Despite the curtain also falling on Galatasaray’s European campaign, they were still represented on the Top Performers team by Moriah Jefferson, who was a shining light with 25.5 points an outing.
