It was no surprise when Kissova was handed a chance to shine during qualification and got her first taste of playing with the senior team. The appointment of Maros Kovacik who has worked with the forward at Good Angels Kosice and with the national youth sides meant he was always likely to turn to a player who knows what it takes to step off the bench and contribute at the highest level. The 21-year-old has several seasons of EuroLeague Women experience to call upon and is over the serious injury which slowed her down a couple of years ago. She does the simple things well and emphasised this last year when she did exactly what she was brought in to do. Should keep her place for the big event as she is capable of grabbing a score or precious rebound and is maturing with every season.
