Last season Kuzina made the most important progress in her career, sacrificing her individual priorities for the club's sake. The attitude that arguably affected her performances previously disappeared and turned the player into a bigger star with Nadezhda. Bright, unusual, explosive, sharp, sometimes even appearing a little angry and fearsome, the Moscow-born player has became one of the most versatile players around. She is not only a dominating physical presence in the paint, but is a real threat from the three-point line - as evidenced when she made five-of-six from the perimeter in the 2nd Qualification Round. With huge experience and a two-time Olympian, this will be the forward's sixth straight summer with the national team.
