Men Awards 2012

French Celine Dumerc was the best European player in 2012


Miguel Mendez was voted Coach of the Year in Europe in 2012
Traditionally at the end of each year Eurobasket announces the European awards for last year.
It's another such ranking prepared by Eurobasket.com staff for women basketball in Europe. Eurobasket has a network of almost 300 correspondents, while most of them are located in Europe and participated in preparing the ranking.
We have the policy of not involving the fans as it may influence the final ranking and instead of that we rely on the opinions of experts.
The votes were made in two categories: All-Europe and All-Europeans.
All-Europe ranking applies to the players, who played in European leagues in last (11-12) and this (12-13) season, so it may apply also to non-European players, who played as imports in Europe.
All-Europeans category applies only to Europeans, but also these, who played overseas (mostly in WNBA).

The Best Player in Europe last year was unanimously Candace Parker (193-C-86) of UMMC Ekaterinburg. The Olympic Games MVP showed her huge potential at every stage. She led US National Team in the Olympic Games in London, together with UMMC she earned Euroleague Bronze Medal. The list of the last season awards is also impressive: All-Euroleague 1st Team, All-Russian PBL Player and Forward of the Year, All-Olympic Games Best Player and Best Center. It seems there is no more titles she can get.
Point Guard of the Year is French Celine Dumerc (169-G-82) who plays for Cercle Jean Mace Bourges in France. Celine had an impressive season with French NT as they won silver medal in London. She was named All-Olympic Games Best Guard (her stats were 14.3ppg, 3.0rpg and 3.4apg). Durmec also celebrated French LFB Championship.
The Best Shooting Guard of the Year award goes to Diana Taurasi (183-SG-82) of UMMC Ekaterinburg. American player played last season at Galatasaray Istanbul in Turkey, this season she moved to Russian powerhouse UMMC Ekaterinburg. With almost 21 points per game she was the best scorer in the Euroleague last season. She won gold medal during the Olympic Games in London last summer.
For small forward position our correspondents selected Seimone Augustus (183-SF-84). The American superstar has been a key player of Spartak Vidnoe Moscow Region for the last two years. Her team reached Euroleague Final Eight and Russian PBL Finals. She was selected All-Euroleague 1st Team. During the summer she advanced to the WNBA Finals with the Minnesota Lynx. By averaging 16.9ppg, 3.9rpg, 2.4apg she was named All-WNBA 1st Team. Seimone is also the Olympic gold medalist from London.

American forward played last year for Spanish Rivas Ecopolis and led her team to the Euroleague Final (they were defeated by Ros Casares Valencia 65-52 in the final game). Asjha was named Final Four MVP. During the summer she played for Connecticut Sun in WNBA and reached WNBA Eastern Conference Finals. She also represented USA during the Olympic Games in London. Of course the US Team won gold medal.
