Parau is well respected and trusted by her colleagues alongside her on the floor and also the coaches who are only too happy to make use of her veteran know-how. A very reliable playmaker with plenty of experience in various leagues around Europe, she is skilled at creating scoring opportunities for her team-mates by setting up the plays and by dishing out assists. What makes her particularly dangerous and effective is her willingness to continually probe and test opposing defences by searching for the slightest opportunity to dribble then penetrate. She is regularly top of the assists chart in her homeland where she has played for all the top clubs in an illustrious career. She won't be fazed by what other teams throw at her as she is calm when having to handle the ball well under pressure. A real puller of the strings who even played at the Final Round some 14 years ago when aged 17, Parau is a level-headed player who can run the show for Romania from the backcourt as she prepares for her fourth EuroBasket Women.
