There will be plenty of new faces in the upcoming Euroleague women season. Players who will be rookies in the competition and players who are new to their teams. Most of them are young and talented, representing the future of the game in Europe and will now see their profiles, below.

QUERALT CASAS

She is such a multi-skilled, smart and decisive player that it looks almost impossible she won't be a huge success in Madrid

She led Spain to back to back gold medals at the U20 European Championship Women, being named MVP in Novi Sad during 2011 and with her former national team coach Miguel Mendez to look after her progress at Rivas Ecopolis, it looks a match made in heaven

Naturally, her first season may see limited results but in the long term, Casas will surely be one of the biggest names in European basketball. She has the class and temperament to reach the very highest level and to stay there.

OLCAY CAKIR

It was a truly incredible moment when 1993-born Olcay Cakir stepped out as a member of the starting five for Fenerbahce at the 2012 Final Eight and it will be intriguing to see whether new head coach, Roberto Iniguez, has as much faith in her as his predecessor, George Dikeoulakos.

Tenacious and gutsy, in perpetual motion, Cakir has just helped Turkey claim their first ever women's youth medal when they grabbed bronze at the recent U20 European Championship Women in Debrecen.

She also made the All Tournament Team and if she can make smart decisions with the ball and deal with defensive pressure that teams will inevitably try to place on her, she can continue her progression.

NIKA BARIC

Whilst Nika Baric is no secret or surprise any longer, having played her rookie year with Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje including some very decent court time at the Final Eight, it's also important not to forget just how young she still is and also how important this season will be for her.
To learn from Becky Hammon and now Spanish veteran Elisa Aguilar, who replaces Jelena Skerovic, is an education beyond belief for the stellar-talented Baric.

She's in a lucky position and I am backing her to take the opportunity with both hands and continue to evolve, one day becoming a true star of the women's game.

But, point guard is arguably the toughest position for any young player so she must keep working hard and listening to coach Pokey Chatman and her team-mates.

KSENIA TIKHONENKO

Ksenia Tikhonenko also stepped out at the Final Eight earlier this year with Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje but this season she is will be on loan to Municipal Targoviste.

It looks to be a pretty smart move by the Russian club - that is, if she settles and, she is given the court-time and support she needs to continue with her development.

She will certainly head into the new season full of confidence having been crowned MVP at the recent U20 European Championship Women in Debrecen where she was the marquee player for a Russian team which made it to the Final and won silver.

It's going to be interesting to see if she can follow the highly successful method which reaped dividends for all three parties last season, when Sparta&K team-mate Natalia Vieru was loaned to Good Angels Kosice.

OZGE YAVAS

I was thrilled to see Ozge Yavas handed a chance to shine with Galatasaray after she penned a deal with them earlier in the summer and this is just the kind of profile her talent deserves although she will have to fight for minutes.

However, she can help provide a really solid Turkish backbone to the team which is essential in any recipe for success at Gala to support the glittering arrival of import stars.
