VOTE: Which player produced the best EuroCup Women performance of 2022?

MUNICH (Germany) - There have been some stellar individual EuroCup Women performances during 2022, with five standout displays in contention to be voted as the best of the calendar year.

Five different teams are represented in the list with the top two performances in terms of efficiency ranking occurring on the final gameday of 2022.

You can cast your vote below to let us know who did it best. But first, here's everything you need to know about the leading contenders.

KALANI BROWN (Maccabi Bnot Ashdod) - December 15, 2022

Game: Botas Spor 61-77 Maccabi Bnot Ashdod (EuroCup Women Regular Season 2022-23)
Statistics: 30 PTS, 75% FG, 25 REB - 48 EFF

It was the EuroCup Women performance of the year from an efficiency standpoint and could not have been better timed. It was a phenomenal double-double from Brown in a win that propelled Maccabi Bnot Ashdod beyond the Regular Season. Completely unguardable down low, the power and poise of the center was incredible in this game and she absolutely smashed it on the glass with one of the biggest rebound hauls in the history of the competition. 

SHAKIRA AUSTIN (Elitzur Landco Ramla) - December 15, 2022

Game: Elitzur Landco Ramla 108-77 Beroe (EuroCup Women Regular Season 2022-23)
Statistics: 32 PTS, 16 REB, 4 AST, 3 BLK - 45 EFF

It's been a superb start for Shakira Austin in her first campaign with Elitzur Landco Ramla and she saved her best until the very last game of the Regular Season. Her amazing effort around the paint highlighted why she was recently crowned a FIBA Women's Basketball World Cup winner. It was a fine double-double, although the assists and blocks also shone a spotlight on her wider skills.

ALISIA JENKINS (Ramat Hasharon) - October 26, 2022

Ramat Hasharon 88-87 Crvena Zvezda MTS (EuroCup Women Regular Season 2022-23)
Statistics: 31 PTS, 67% FG, 17 REB, 5 AST - 44 EFF

It was about as bitter-sweet as it gets when the all-action Jenkins posted a simply breathtaking display for Ramat Hasharon and yet ended up on the wrong end of a gut-wrenching one point loss to Crvena Zvezda. This kind of show has been typical of Jenkins through the season and her energy, aggressive and positive approach always pays dividends - especially on the glass. 

ILIANA RUPERT (Tango Bourges Basket) - January 20, 2022

Game:  Tango Bourges Basket 94-55 Zabiny Brno (EuroCup Women Round of 16 2021-22)
Statistics: 27 PTS, 79% FG, 13 REB, 5 STL - 42 EFF

While statistically this was the best for Rupert last season when she put Zabiny Brno to the sword with an unstoppable effort, everyone will remember that the center went on to even greater things by the time April arrived. The young star ended up winning the title with her now former club Bourges and also celebrated being crowned the Final Four MVP. 

REKA LELIK (Castors Braine) - December 7, 2022

Game: Castors Braine 115-61 BBC Grengewald (EuroCup Women Regular Season 2022-23)
Statistics: 30 PTS, 60% FG, 12 REB, 7 AST - 42 EFF

The Hungarian national team winger showcased the full range of her skills for Castors Braine when they overwhelmed BBC Grengewald. Lelik has always been someone who can score in a hurry and it was not just that offensive firepower in this outing that caught the eye, but also her creativity and superb work on the boards.
