Lupa Promotion today announced the acquisition of Slovakian center Anna Jurcenkova, who was recently voted as Slovakian League MVP according to Eurobasket.com. Team president Vladimir Ivankovic considers Jurcenkova “to be a successful replacement for Lupa Promotion last season’s MVP, American center Brittany Miller”.
Both sides are very pleased with the transfer. Although financial terms of the contract were not released 25-year old Jurcenkova stated that “she is definitely looking forward to the new chapter in her life – to play for the team which is situated outside of Slovakia after 8 consecutive years spent in Kosice, Slovakia.”
On the other side Lupa Promotion has the high hopes that Jurcenkova will provide a formidable frontcourt anchor, especially against the regional competition. Lupa’s head coach Zeljko Ciglar is very pleased with the addition of 6’5”/1.95m Jurcenkova: “If my evaluations are correct, we have just added a key player under the basket.”
