6 Jul 2017

AMSTERDAM (FIBA 3x3 Europe Cup 2017) - With the third edition of the FIBA 3x3 Europe Cup starting tomorrow, here's a look at the Top 5 women who should make some noise in Amsterdam.

Karin Kuijt (NED)

Know your stars: Karin Kuijt can knock down shots and has a killer crossover. Some call her 2K but with her buddy Killer Klerx on the same court, they make it big, they make it 4k.

Sara Krumpholcova (CZE)

There’s fast and there’s how Sara went from U18 Europe Cup MVP to World Champion to number one 3x3 player in the world in less than a year. Be ready this weekend in Amsterdam: the 3x3 prodigy can shoot it all the way from Rotterdam.

Anna Leshkovtseva (RUS)

Thirty but still thirsty, Anna Leshkovtseva played the best 3x3 basketball of her life in Nantes and added an MVP trophy to her gold medal with Russia. You can try to guard her close but don’t reach or you might give the SportCourt a big hug.

Alexandra Theodorean (HUN)

Just 2 weeks ago at the World Cup, Theodorean proved she had ice in her veins with a mean buzzer-beater to reach the final. With Dora Medgyessy back in the lineup, it’s half of last year’s winning team and 2 girls with a 3x3 tattoo on the court for Hungary this weekend.

Sonia Ursu (ROU)

We could mention Sonia Ursu’s ability to hit the big shots and lose her defender on a hard drive to the rim but her Instagram account says it all: “savage mentality but Namaste”.
