Maya Moore headlines, but who else made the EuroLeague Women team of the week?

MUNICH (EuroLeague Women) - A trio of Yakin Dogu Universitesi players were leaving their mark on the opening night of Quarter-Final action, but it was Moore who shone brightest. Check out who made our team of the week.

PG | COURTNEY VANDERSLOOT, Yakin Dogu Universitesi | Efficiency: 24 (17pts, 13ast)


As she has done all season, this year's standout guard Courtney Vandersloot continued running Yakin Dogu Universitesi's backcourt like a well-oiled machine on Wednesday evening and now holds the top four positions in the standings for assists-per-game.

SG | MAYA MOORE, UMMC Ekaterinburg | Efficiency: 34 (29pts, 7reb, 5ast)


There were some big performances on the opening night of the Quarter-Finals, none more so than that of UMMC Ekaterinburg's mid-season replacement Maya Moore. Joining the Russian powerhouse as a late replacement for the departing Diana Taurasi, the American standout has made just two EuroLeague Women appearances so far, but is averaging 22 points and 7.5 rebounds, showing she has taken little time to adjust to her new team. 

SF | KAYLA MCBRIDE | Yakin Dogu Universitesi | Efficiency: 22 (23pts, 6reb)


Continuing to be a big benefactor from the backcourt play of Courtney Vandersloot is Kayla McBride. The 25-year-old was shooting at 45 percent from the field on Wednesday, in line with her 47.3 percent shooting for the season. Break it down even more, and in the last four games of EuroLeague Women action, McBride is averaging 55 percent (10-of-18) from beyond the arc.

 PF | EMMA MEESSEMAN | UMMC Ekaterinburg | Efficiency: 19 (19pts, 4reb)


In a stacked UMMC frontcourt, the Belgian youngster continues to command big minutes, in fact, the third-most on the roster behind Brittney Griner and Alba Torrens. Her 19 points on Wednesday night matched her second-best offensive output of the season. 

C | SANDRINE GRUDA | Yakin Dogu Universitesi | Efficiency: 23 (14pts, 12 reb)


Like Maya Moore in Ekaterinburg, Sandrine Gruda was a mid-season acquisition, also with an immediate impact. Playing against a host of her French national side teammates this week, she went 7-of-9 from the field against an undersized Bourges frontcourt.
