Even before she was crowned MVP at the U18 European Championship Women Division B in 2011, Tikvic was already being tipped to one day potentially become a force at senior level. While she had not made quite the same impressions at U16 level, she had all the ingredients. Her nice touch, offensive weapons, rebounding prowess and shot-blocking ability were all attracting the attention of scouts and agents from a very young age. With a Croatian Championship now to her name and more excellent numbers on her resume, she has also taken the step into the senior set-up after featuring briefly in the 2nd Qualification Round. A trusted member of Coach Turic's team at club level, she is likely to become that exact same thing for her country and should be given an opportunity to jump off the bench at the Final Round.
