Her 25 points, six rebounds and three assists accumulated for an efficiency of 26 to lead all players in the first games of the EuroCup Women semi-finals.

Wiggins, who played in EuroLeague Women for Ros Casares last season is the leading scorer for Athinaikos and a cornerstone in their successful season so far.

The 23 years old guard is averaging 16.7 points and 4.0 rebounds per contest and only scored less than 11 points twice this season.

Having represented the USA at youth level Wiggins is also playing in the WNBA for the Minnesota Lynx, together with former Ros Casars teamate Anna Montanana, and EuroLeague Women All Stars Rebekkah Brunson and Lindsay Whalen.

Athinaikos are now only one game shy of the EuroCup Women finals and can even afford a home loss with 5 points or less.
