Club Team 2012-13: SK Cesis (Latvia-LSBL)
Career: BK Ventspils (Latvia-LSBL, 2003-06), Barton County (USA-JUCO, 2006-09), Robert Morris (USA-NCAA, 2009-11), SK Cesis (Latvia-LSBL, 2012-13)
She may have never stepped out for her country in the seven years which have elapsed since she finished her youth career, but the guard has just catapulted herself into the frame for EuroBasket Women 2013 after a standout season for Latvian champions SK Cesis. She has played more minutes per game than anyone else for her team and produced some fantastic numbers right across the board to show her full skill-set. She finished with 14.5 points, 6.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.7 steals-per-game. She generally plays the shooting guard position but can play small forward too. She is a gritty player and someone who opponents shouldn't tangle with since she normally comes up as the winner. There will be few other Latvian players coming into the summer with this kind of confidence and good form.
