With a personality on and off the court as huge as her impressive resume, there's little not to love about the fiery and amazingly competitive Palau, who looks like a perfect candidate to continue being involved in the game in some capacity, when she finally hangs up her shoes. Always talking on the court to her team-mates, the match officials and her opponents, the guard is a great organiser, a fantastic veteran player and huge influence on her fellow players and any team she steps out for. Having won EuroLeague Women last year with Ros Casares, she comes into the summer off the back of one of her most impressive seasons of her club career and the only one outside of her homeland. She was the main thrust of a historic season for CCC Polkowice who reached the EuroLeague Women Final Eight and completed a domestic clean sweep.
