Nneka is frontrunner for EuroLeague Women MVP

It's almost time for the FIBA 2015 EuroLeague Women Final Four. A week from tomorrow (April 10), Dynamo Kursk (Nneka's team) meets UMMC Ekaterinburg and Fenerbahce meets SVVS USK Praha in the semifinals. The winners play for the championship two days later (April 12).

Paul Nilsen, in an analysis of Dynamo Kursk, has this to say about Nneka:

Headline Writer: Nnemkadi Ogwumike is a serious frontrunner for EuroLeague Women MVP after a quite stunning campaign. Having previously propelled CCC Polkowice to a historic first Final Eight appearance in 2013, she took a year out of the tournament and has come storming back to help her current club blaze a trail. Her displays and numbers have been sensational and averaging a spectacular season double-double of 19.8 points and 10.8 rebounds per game, it's easy to see why the forward is ready to write some more headlines. Most impressively, she has done it with a very nice shooting percentage, she also works hard boxing out as the second best defensive rebounder in the tournament and is wholly unselfish with a nice eye for a pass - something which has harvested her 2.5 assists per game.
