SEATTLE – The Seattle Storm today announced that Aleksandra Crvendakic, a 6-2 Serbian-Hungarian forward, has signed a training camp contract with the franchise.
A member of the Serbian National Team that took Bronze in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, Crvendakic has emerged as one of the rising young superstars in Europe. A versatile, 21-year-old forward who can also drain the three, Crvendakic plays for Sopron Basket, a Hungarian women’s basketball club that also features Storm forward Crystal Langhorne. The duo has been the mainstay for the team’s offense, combining for over 38 percent of its scoring output. Crvendakic has helped lead Sopron Basket to the quarterfinals of EuroLeague Women, tallying 15.4 points and over seven rebounds per contest, and also shooting 44.2 percent from beyond the arc. Sopron Basket competes in the quarterfinals against Fenerbahce on Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 11:30 a.m. PT.
Crvendakic was a first-team selection in the U18 European Championships in 2013 and 2014, as well as the U20 European Championship 2016. In 2012, she was the top scorer (19.5 PPG, 8.5 RPG) in the U16 European Championship 2012, and the second best scorer, rebounder and passer (16.1 PPG, 10.9 RPG, 4.5 APG) in the U18 European Championship in 2013.
