Gorbunova Leads All Star Five

Ukrainian forward Olexandra Gorbunova led a talented crop of players at the European Championship for U18 Women in Bratislava.

The 185 cm Gorbunova was selected as MVP of the tournament. She led all players in scoring in Bratislava at 21.4 ppg, to which she added 9.8 rpg. Germany were unfortunate enough to face Gorbunova at her best, and in their preliminary round match-up, she scored 23 points and grabbed 24 rebounds.
