Yelena Leuchanka-Belarus and Galatasaray

Though Belarus has shocked the basketball world in 2007 with a bronze medal at EuroBasket Women, there were few pundits who thought they could equal that two years later. Thanks in large part to the play of Yelena Leuchanka they proved that they are still a force to be reckoned with on the European stage. Leuchanka nearly averaged a double-double (10.6 points and 9.2 rebounds) in leading Belarus to within one win of a podium spot.
