WARSAW: Zimbabwean-born Stephanie Maunga has been named the Polish Professional Basketball League Player of the Year.
Maunga Enrique is having an unforgettable season with the Polkowis Women’s Basketball League, playing a key role in their quest for playoffs as they advance to the semi-finals.
This season he averaged 15 points and 4.6 rebounds, with an average of 1.91 million strikers recognized as the best player, with Bolkovic setting a 20-2 regular season record.
Maunga scored 63.5%, 27.3% three points overall and 72.1% from the streak before the throw.
27-year-old Power Forward, who won the Polish Cup in February, has started a new life in Europe since Indiana Fever launched the WNBA website last year.
At the start of the 2021-2022 season, Maunga joined Bolkois after leaving the Russian League where he played for Dynamo Kursk.
The Harare-born basketball player immigrated to the United States at a young age and is happy to be recognized in Poland.
“I think what I want to say, but I changed my mind. I think again … I change my mind again,” he said in a statement on Instagram.
“The truth is, I can’t say it all in words, but start by thinking, ‘Blessed be God for all he has done for me!’ I will never cease to thank him for his perpetual blessings.
“Thank you to my team, Bolkovic, to my coach and administrator for giving me the opportunity after a difficult and difficult season last year. Thank you so much for letting me come and play. Thank you to my team because without them it would not be possible and thanks to all the fans.
Maunga became the first Zimbabwean-born player to be invited to the WNBA in four years.
In two successful seasons, Indiana called her up for the second round and 14th overall pick for the 2018 draft, both North Carolina State University and Ohio State University, leading to promotion to the United States Women’s Professional Basketball Association.
