The center is one of the first players Coach Baletic turns to when he needs to rest his frontcourt starters, since Popovic is a veteran player who has patrolled the paint for many years. She was handed almost 12 minutes-per-game at EuroBasket Women 2011 and can probably expect to continue providing support from the bench. A dominating physical presence, Popovic is a defensive asset and fierce rebounder, who having turned 31, has just completed the most impressive season of her entire career. She played in the high-quality Russian League with Spartak Noginsk and again showed she has the know-how to compete and get the job done, producing some impressive performances not only domestically, but also in EuroCup Women where she did a stellar job on the glass, reaching double-digits in rebounds on three occasions.
