Semi-Finals Second Leg Top Performers: McCowan, Gruda, Shepard, Burke, Delaere

MUNICH (Germany) - Teaira McCowan is looking forward to playing in the EuroCup Women Final with Galatasaray Cagdas Factoring and heads into it with momentum after yet another Top Performer honor.

While her team were beaten 69-60 at Umana Reyer Venezia, a huge first game victory in Istanbul meant they still navigated their way out of the Semi-Finals and towards a potential third title. They also avoided being dumped out thanks mainly to the center producing a fabulous 17 points and 18 rebounds which harvested a performance efficiency valuation of 29.

In the same game, Reyer were powered by Jessica Shepard who impressed in the victory by posting 15 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists. Meanwhile, her teammate Antonia Delaere also caught the eye after amassing 13 points,4 boards and 2 assists.

Sandrine Gruda was the central figure behind LDLC ASVEL Feminin making their maiden Final as they won a dramatic and roller-coaster contest 71-69 against Villeneuve d'Ascq LM to progress by 6 on aggregate. The center rolled back the years with a typically classy season best 23 points and 7 rebounds. 

Kennedy Burke did her best to help former winners Villeneuve make their second Final, but they just fell short despite her contributing 14 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists.
