The guard always brings intensity to the table whenever she steps out for Turkey and whilst she didn't find her range at EuroBasket Women last time, she was superb at the London Olympics where she produced an excellent shooting display. Despite already being 31, it has only been in the last five years that Palazoglu has managed to force her way into the senior team and now, she's an essential part of the rotation due to her three-point shooting ability and the energy she offers. She's quick, sometimes explosive in her scoring and knows what success tastes like having won EuroCup Women at Galatasaray as well as being a Turkish League All Star.
