So hat alles begonnen:

So i was actually practicing gymnastics at first and then one day out of nothing I switched to basketball. There was no real reason if I’m honest

Meine Basketballstationen:

I started playing in ŽKD MARIBOR for I think 5 years. For my 3rd and 4th year of high school I went to ŽKK Cinkarna Celje and last year I played in United States for Weatherford College in Texas.

Meine Basketballhighlights:

 Maribor: 2nd place U15 WABA league

 Celje:

  U19 Slovenian L. 2nd place (2017), 1st (2018)

  Seniors  Slo. L. 1st place (2017,2018)

  Seniors Slo. Cup 2nd (2018)

  National team SLO, 2nd place at Eurobasket A division U20

Weatherford College: made it to regional tournament for region 5, I was 3rd team all-American academically

Off-the-Court:

There is not much off the court time for me because of working and going to university … but when there is any, I love spending time with my friends or right now just focusing on my rehab after surgery.

Goals for this season:

My main goal is for everyone so stay healthy. We have a lot of injuries right now and I want them to be gone soon. About the games … we just have to stay focus on one goal, which is giving 110% at the practice. If we gonna do that, I don’t doubt in a lot of wins.

What makes our team special is…

Pretty sure that’s our energy. As soon as I got here in Graz, I got so welcome from every player and a team member. I have never felt so good for myself with so much good energy as I do right now with this team. I hope we gonna keep building on that team spirit, it’s was makes different.
