Serbia guard Ana Dabovic has been named as the Most Valuable Player of EuroBasket Women 2015 after leading her side to their first European championship.

Dabovic, who averaged 14.7 points during the tournament in Romania and Hungary including a game-high 25 in the final, received the most votes from a media panel, edging France center Sandrine Gruda into second place. 

The MVP award presented by Tissot was given to Dabovic by FIBA President Horacio Muratore.

"Getting this medal means everything, to me, to the team and to the country," Dabovic said. "It makes me so proud, playing with this group of girls who really wanted to win. To have the gold and to get this MVP means so much. But it's also for all the girls back home who will have watched and maybe now want to be like us. This is the best thing we could do, to get them to love basketball."

Both Gruda and Dabovic were confirmed in the All-Star Five presented by Tissot for EuroBasket Women 2015, joining their respective team-mates Celine Dumerc and Sonja Petrovic, with Spain's Alba Torrens - who had earlier taken Spain to the bronze medal with a game-high 25 points - leading the vote-getters among forwards.

"It was a really tough tournament," Torrens said. "The level of all the teams was amazing. From the first day, every game was really hard. There wasn't one easy moment. It was hard physically and mentally too. So I'm very proud of how my team and my coaches fought."
