Former Nebraska standout Danielle Page scored 12 points and pulled down a game-high eight rebounds while adding two assists to power Serbia to a 76-68 upset of top-seeded France at the Eurobasket Women’s Championship in Budapest Hungary.
The victory earned Serbia an automatic bid into the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It also gave Serbia its first-ever Eurobasket championship.
Page, a 6-2 forward from Monument, Colo., has been one of the top professional players in France since graduating from Nebraska in 2008. She is in her first year as a member of the Serbian National Team. Page completed the required paperwork to gain Serbian citizenship following the end of her seventh professional season in Europe this spring. Page’s professional career began with one season as a member of the WNBA’s Connecticut Sun in 2008.
