Pavel has locked down a starting spot in the five position during recent years and that is not surprising, since she has all the ingredients required in the paint. She is strong, powerful and has a very nice touch and finishing ability around the basket, meaning she is a good bet to play plenty of scoring cameos at the Final Round. She can also score in transition as she runs the floor well for a big body and is always unselfishly working hard off the ball by setting crafty screens for her team-mates. She isn't afraid to shoot the ball from outside if left home alone and is also happy getting in the face of her opponents on defence. While she has played in Austria and Italy, she is established as one of the premier frontcourt stars of Romanian women's basketball.
