BASKETBALL IN EUROPE
|Croatian center Petra Stampalija averaged 13.4 points and 8.7 rebounds in the EuroCup Women this season with Hainaut Basket|
Polish champions Wisla Can-Pack Krakow have dipped into the free-agent player market again and signed Petra Stampalija.
The Croatian veteran had a strong season in France playing for Hainaut Basket.
A 1.89m center, Stampalija averaged 13.4 points and 8.7 rebounds in the EuroCup Women.
The Polish club's coach, Jose Hernandez, knows exactly what he is getting in Stampalija because she played for him in 2008-09 when the Spanish tactician led Perfumerias Avenida into the EuroLeague Women Final.
Stampalija had a leading role for Perfumerias in their Final Four triumph over Sopron, pouring in 14 points and corralling five rebounds in that 85-78 triumph for the Salamanca team.
She averaged 8.6 points and 4.7 rebounds for Avenida.
Outside of Croatia, Stampalija has also played for Toulouse LB in 2003-04 and CCC Polkowice in 2007-08.
