Tango Bourges Basket sign one of the most exciting prospects in Europe
BOURGES (EuroLeague Women) – Fans at Le Prado can look forward to seeing yet another rising star of the women's game in Europe after French powerhouse Bourges Basket inked Iliana Rupert for the 2018-19 campaign.
It was on the home court of Bourges last summer that Rupert hit a high last year when she was deservedly crowned MVP for inspiring France to the FIBA U16 Women's European Championship 2017.
Averaging a tournament double-double of almost 14 points and 11 boards per game, Rupert certainly turned heads and the locals in Bourges will be delighted the conveyor belt of talent coming to the club is set to continue.
Currently playing with the French Federation's INSEP side in the second tier, she will follow in the footsteps of other young guns such as Alexia Chartereau - giving Bourges an even more dynamic and exciting feel alongside the likes of Marine Johannes.
