Nevriye Yilmaz - EuroBasket Women 2015 Profile

A legend of women's basketball in Turkey and one of the most respected veteran players in the European game, it had looked like Yilmaz would step down and end her sparkling career on homesoil at the FIBA World Championship for Women. Instead, it looks like she will try to help her nation step back onto the EuroBasket Women podium for a third successive time and punch a coveted ticket to the Rio Olympics. A colossus for any team she plays with, she may not be able to play quite as many minutes these days, but there are few with her wealth of experience or knack of finishing in the high and low post. Whether it is knocking down jumps shots or scoring on the block, Yilmaz is a warrior with real class, who could be ready for one last fight and has shown in EuroLeague Women that the tank still has gas left in it.
