Yilmaz Is Quarter-Finals Game 1 MVP

23.02.2011

EuroLeague Women

Fenerbahce lost the home-court advantage in their quarter-final series with Sparta&K on Tuesday night, but Nevriye Yilmaz added to her reputation as one of the most valuable players of the season.

Yilmaz came up with another memorable contribution, this time against the defending EuroLeague Women champions, to reach a performance index rating of 29 and claim the EuroLeague Women Quarter-Final Play-offs Game 1 MVP title.

The 30-year-old Turkey international stayed on the floor for the entire duration of the big game and finished with 24 points on 8-of-16 shooting from the field (8-of-8 from the free throw line), grabbed nine rebounds and dished four assists.

The Turkish side captain's brilliant performance was not enough for Fenerbahce to avoid defeat, but it's difficult to ask more of the experienced center who has been rock-solid throughout the season and  stepped up to lead the team in both scoring and rebounding since the departure of Diana Taurasi and Penny Taylor, averaging 17.2 ppg and 7.2 rpg.
