Veuillez trouver en bas du page le communiqué sur les MVP de la ligue féminine de basketball de 2012.

The French player of the year awards for the Ligue Féminine de Basketball is organised by MaxiBasket, an independent basketball news publication in France.

They collect votes from the captains and coaches from all the clubs in the first division as well as from an expert panel. This is the 11th season that the Ligue Féminine de Basketball has collaborated with MaxiBasket in presenting these awards.

The 2012 awards are as follows:

 Edwige Lawson-Wade 2012 LFB MVP © womensbasketball-in-france.com The 2012 LFB French player of the year is Edwige Lawson-Wade (right). This is the first time she has won this award although she was young player of the year in the Ligue twice in 1997 ad 1998.

Lawson-Wade is the fist player from Montpellier to have won this award. During the regular season she averaged 13.7 points and dished out 4.7 assists. She also had an efficiency ranking of 16.1.

Mistie Mims has picked up the foreign player of the year award for the second time. She had been already the 2011 foreign player of the year in the LFB. Mims led the regular season scoring statistics with 19.7 points and also the efficiency ranking with 20.4 points. She also compiled 7.6 rebounds.

Mims signed another three-year deal earlier in the season which will keep her in Challes-les-Eaux until 2015.

Sara Chevaugeon joined Challes-les-Eaux this season (2011-2012) from the CFBB and is the first player from the club to become young player of the year in this division.

She was also a member of the French team that had won a silver medal at the 2011 European Championship for Women Division A, despite having been handicapped with an ankle injury.


Ligue Féminine de Basket – Retour gagnant pour Edwige Lawson-Wade

 Edwige Lawson-Wade  © womensbasketball-in-france.com Réalisé en collaboration avec le mensuel Maxi Basket et l’hebdomadaire BasketNews, le référendum LFB / Maxi Basket récompense la meilleure joueuse française, étrangère et espoir (née en 1992 et après) de la saison. Le sondage a été effectué auprès des capitaines et entraîneurs des équipes de Ligue Féminine ainsi que d’un panel de journalistes spécialisés.

Revenue en France après plusieurs saisons à l’étranger (Russie, Israël, Espagne), la meneuse de Lattes Montpellier Edwige Lawson-Wade décroche son premier titre de MVP française.

 Mistie Mims © womensbasketball-in-france.com Meilleure espoir en 1997 et 1998, son retour en LFB coïncide avec la très belle saison du BLMA (2e).

Son apport dans le collectif de Valéry Demory est incontestable (16.6 d’évaluation, n°1 française). Cet été, elle tentera de qualifier les Bleues pour les Jeux Olympiques de Londres.

Meilleure marqueuse (19.7 points) et meilleure évaluation (20.4) du championnat, Mistie Mims est logiquement désignée MVP étrangère de LFB, pour la deuxième année consécutive.

Avec Challes-les-Eaux, l’intérieure a terminé sur le podium de la saison régulière (3e), elle continuera d’ailleurs à faire les beaux jours du club savoyard puisque l’Américaine a prolongé son bail dans la cité thermale.

 Sara Chevaugeon © womensbasketball-in-france.com Sortie du Centre Fédéral il y a moins d’un an, Sara Chevaugeon a réalisé une première saison pleine de promesse.

Dans une équipe de haut de tableau, elle a su saisir les opportunités offertes par son entraîneur Aldo Corno. La native de La Rochelle devrait revêtir le maillot bleu cet été avec l’Équipe de France espoirs.
