Nneka is EuroLeague Women Player of the Week

In the penultimate round of Regular Season EuroLeague Women action, Dynamo Kursk shot the lights out and racked up the highest score by any team during the current EuroLeague Women season as they left Uniqa Sopron trailing in their wake with a one-sided 102-68 success in Group B.

The FIBA game report lauds Nneka as the Game Hero: Nnemkadi Ogwumike could barely miss inside the paint and her lethal 9-of-10 shooting effort helped to harvest 22 points, which went nicely with eight rebounds, five assists and two blocks.

Eurobasket News acknowledged her extraordinary performance:

Nigerian-American Power forward Nnemkadi Ogwumike (189-F/C-90) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Dynamo K., receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 13.

The 25-year old player was the main contributor (22 points, eight rebounds and five assists) to her team's victory, helping them to outclass UNIQA Eurol. (#8, 1-12) with 34-point margin 102-68. Dynamo K. maintains the 3rd position in Euroleague .

They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Dynamo K. will need more victories to improve their 9-4 record.

In the team's last game Ogwumike had a remarkable 87.5% from 2-point range. She turned to be Dynamo K.'s top player in her first season with the team. Former Stanford University star has very solid stats this year. Ogwumike is in league's top in points (2nd best: 18.3ppg), rebounds (5th best: 8.9rpg) and averages impressive 61.8% FGP.
