U20 European Championship Women 2011 MVP Queralt Casas (Spain)
On a very good and balanced Spain team one player stood out: Queralt Casas was the MVP of the Final and the MVP of the U20 European Championship Women

Queralt Casas was named MVP of the U20 European Championship Women after leading Spain to gold with a 62-53 victory over Russia in the final.

Casas put in a fitting performance as she scored 21 points while collecting six rebounds and making three steals.

The 18-year-old guard already plays like one of the most experienced members of Spain's team, operating as their heartbeat as she spearheads the pressure defense and frequently scoring directly from the steals she is so effective at taking.

She was joined in the All-Tournament Team by silver medallist Anastasiya Shilova, who had 18 points and 11 rebounds in the losing effort for Russia in the final.

Bronze-medal winning Poland were represented by their star forward Malgorzata Misiuk, who averaged 13.1 points and 7.3 rebounds in their campaign.

Hometown favourite Sara Krnjic made the team for Serbia, having stepped up after the early injury to Tina Jovanovic that ended the captain's tournament after only two games. Krnjic, who celebrated her 20th birthday on quarter-finals day, led Serbia in both scoring and rebounding with 15.8 points and 11.4 boards.

The five was completed by Ukraine's all-action guard Alina Iagupova, who ended the tourmnament averaging 16.6 points, 7.4 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game.
