The public and experts have voted and the race for the 2011 FIBA Europe European player of the year is over.
For the first time since they started giving out the awards the results of Women's Player of the Year and Young Women of the Year will be announced on the same day (Monday, 6 February 2011). The equivalent men's award results will be made public seven days later.
Our coverage of youth and senior international events in 2011 gave us an opportunity to see all the players nominated. All the players nominated for the senior award were in action at EuroBasket Women 2011.
In the players nominated for the young women's award only Greek international Artemis Spanou is not playing basketball in Europe.
