24 Seconds With Ann Wauters

Fresh off a second consecutive EuroLeague Women title, Samara and Belgium national team star Ann Wauters barely has time to draw breath before she heads to the USA and the WNBA's New York Liberty.

We managed to catch up with Ann before her departure to get the lowdown on her favourite basketball shoes, Maria Stepanova's dunk and her most embarrassing moment on the basketball court.

Gambrinus JME 66 vs. VBM-SGAU 69

Samara lifted the first EuroLeague Women title of the club’s short history tonight after a sensational victory over Gambrinus Brno at the Final Four.

Brno, who have made 5 Final Fours in the last 6 seasons had the experience, but Samara’s star power proved too much for the Czech side, as they powered to victory in the final 5 minutes.

Russia: Duo Pen New Samara Deals

Samara have extended the contracts of star players Ann Wauters and Maria Stepanova ahead of the start of the Final Four of the FIBA EuroLeague Women this week.

Wauters has signed a two-year agreement with the club, much to the disappointment of their European rivals as Ros Casares, Valenciennes and Parma were all keen to sign the Belgian international.
