Amateur basketball player of the year awards for NF2 2008-2009
Officially there are no Amateur basketball awards at a national level for women playing basketball in France given by the French basketball Federation (FFBB).
However Basquetetbol.org who already give out national awards for NF1 decided to compensate players in Nationale Féminine 2.
There are 55 teams playing in NF2 instead of 56 because only 13 teams are in group B.
The four groups are split geographically (South-East, South-West, North-East and North-West).
The coaches from each team were asked to choose the five best players from their group, regardless of position played.
In addition basquetebol.org’s regional correspondents voted.
From the four players that won the award, two players have played in the LFB and another player has played for clubs in the EuroLeague Women.
In additions players from other Europeans countries as well as America, Canada, Nigeria and Senegal finished in the top ten for their division.
