Eurobasket 2021 stats: PPG: 16.5 RPG: 7.0
Sonja is a highly talented player who can perform multiple roles. Vasic has superb dribbling skills, she can stop on the dime and shoot, she can hang out in the low past and finish, while also being a more than capable shooter. She will give fits to the Canadian defense and since she will retire after the Olympics, she will give it her all. Sonja is a candidate for the Super Player in the Dream11 Fantasy scenario.
WNBA stats: PPG: 9.7 RPG: 3.7
Kia is primarily a long-range bomber and plays for the Phoenix Mercury in the WNBA. She can also hit tough shots late in the game and the Serbs will be on the lookout for her at the perimeter.

Yvonne is a blur at the PG position and has incredible moves that help her finish at the basket. She has superb ball-handling skills and can change the game with her calculated passes. Anderson can also grind it out at the defense and that makes her one of the most talented players in the world.

Amihere is a young and up-and-coming Forward who plays hard and shows maturity for her age. She can drive to the hoop with ease and can finish in traffic, but both her rebounding and defense can’t be overlooked either. She will be the “X-Factor” against the Serbs and it will be difficult to get easy looks against such an experienced team.

Aleksandra is a money player who has all the moves in her book. Like Sonja, she is no one-trick pony and can score in multiple ways. Aleksandra has also shown that he can contribute as a rebounder and playmaker, thus, she is another one of those versatile Serbs players who seems to do everything in the game.
