Prince picks up Top Performer award
MUNICH (Germany) - Epiphanny Prince has been recognized for posting her best line of the season with Dynamo Kursk by taking the Week 12 Top Performer honor.
She did it all in her team's 76-64 victory against Spar Citylift Girona as the Russian side halted an alarming slide of four defeats on the bounce. She came up with 18 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists. Her next task is now to try and get the nod as Fans' MVP, via the interactive vote below.
Her main competition is likely to come from teenage ace Iliana Rupert of Bourges Basket after the 18-year-old produced the best performance of her EuroLeague Women career to date. She fired 73 percent from the floor en-route to 23 points and also had 6 rebounds in the commanding 88-50 win at Cukurova.
Meanwhile, ZVVZ USK Praha standout Alyssa Thomas has been a regular member of the Team of the Week throughout the season. Her latest appearance comes courtesy of a mammoth double-double with ZVVZ USK Praha as they swept past Nadezhda 86-67. She harvested a jaw-dropping 18 points and 19 rebounds, as well as dishing up 6 assists.
Brittney Griner is also someone who has been in our line-up on multiple occasions and she is back again after barely missing for UMMC in their 87-67 success against TTT Riga. The American center claimed 19 points from 70 percent field goal shooting and also hauled down 10 boards and blocked three shots.
Finally, Barbora Balintova was not on the winning team as Arka Gdynia suffered a 77-67 fall at the hands of Sopron Basket, but the guard was still outstanding. She impressed with a sweet double-double of 19 points and 10 assists - as well as 5 rebounds and 2 steals.
