More than forty (and maybe even more to come) former or current WNBA players/draft picks are competing in EuroLeague, the most competitive international women’s basketball in the world. Below is a list of recognizable names and the odds their team has at winning the championship.
Breanna Stewart* (out with Achilles injury)
Katie Lou Samuelson
Amanda Zahui B
Michaela Onyenwere (*out with thumb injury)
Clarissa Dos Santos
If you like winning, UMMC Ekaterinburg (Ekat) is pretty good at it. They’re the reigning champions the last three years and have a team full of WNBA stars including Courtney Vandersloot, Brittney Griner, Allie Quigley, Jonquel Jones and more. Their top competition is Dynamo Kursk, loaded with scorers Arike Ogunbowale and Natasha Howard.
Are you a Connecticut Sun fan? Alyssa Thomas and Briona Jones play for darkhorse ZVVZ USKK Praha. Dallas Wings fan? Satou Sabally will be huge for Fenerbache.
Take your time and watch a few games to get settled. But let your WNBA faves be your guide to a new fandom.
