Olivia Epoupa – France and Basket Landes

7. Olivia Epoupa (France)

Small was big for France at the U18 European Championship Women, as 1.65m point guard Olivia Epoupa led her side to a first ever gold medal in this age category. Playing with great heart at both ends of the floor, Epoupa saved her best performance for last, scoring 20 points in the gold medal game against Russia, while also pulling down 12 rebounds and dishing out five assists. For her all-round display during the tournament, she earned MVP honours, a real confidence-booster for the energetic guard, who is currently enjoying an increased role with Basket Landes in the EuroCup Women.
