The Anne Thorius Award

I`m glad to be able to present the award to the best player in the tournament as "The Anne Thorius Award".

Michigan has given her a wall of Anne Thorius thats greatness
Anne is one of, if not the greatest danish womens basketball player of all time and I couldn`t come up with a more deserving name for this award.
Anne`s leadership, will and smartness in the game of basketball took her on long succesful trip around the world as a player. She lead Michigan Wolverines in assist for all her 4 years at college and was named Michigan's Most Outstanding Player and Defensive Player of the Year awards, and was drafted by Orlando of the WNBA.

"I had the pleasure of seeing Anne Thorius play and she had a presence on the court and she impacted every game in her own way with great leadership and hardnosed attitude towards the game. She would guide here co players in the right direction and if that didn`t work she would find some way to get them to fullfil the gameplan. In many ways I think Anne was what most coaches dream about, a player that made the team and you as a coach so much better without a demand to score a million points every night. She led and you would follow most of the times into greatness"
