This is the second profile in the series of the eight new Duquesne women's basketball players that will be joining the roster for the 2015-16 season. Today, Eniko Kuttor will be profiled.
Kuttor, a 6-1 forward from Budapest, Hungary, led her team to a perfect 7-0 record and a gold medal at the 2014 FIBA U18 Division B European Women's Championship. She averaged 12.3 points per game and 9.4 rebounds per game. She recorded four double-doubles and finished the event 2nd in free throw percentage (84.6) and 4th in field goal percentage (52.5). Lass and Kuttor met head-to-head in the final game of the tournament - a 58-52 win for Hungary. In the 2014 FIBA U17 World Championship Women, Kuttor led Hungary to a 6-1 record and a third place finish in the 16-team field. She recorded a double-double of 10 points and 14 rebounds in Hungary's 61-51 win over Japan and a tournament-best 17 points in Hungary's 100-47 win over Egypt.
Kuttor recorded a double-double of career-high of 23 points and 16 rebounds in Hungary's 75-50 victory over Croatia in the quarterfinal round of the 2013 FIBA U16 Division A European Women's Championship. Kuttor led Hungary to a third place finish in the 16-team field.
During the 2014-15 season, Kuttor played for Uniqa Euroleasing Sopron in the Hungarian A League. She led the team to a 17-1 regular season record and a 24-2 overall record en route to winning the league championship over Miskolc. Kuttor plans on majoring in international business.
"Eniko is a technically skilled European whose best attributes and skills don't always show up in a game box score," said head coach Dan Burt. She is an outstanding defender, both on the ball and as a help defender. She plays exceptionally hard and rebounds outside her area well. Also, Eniko has the ability to connect consistently from beyond the arc while also employing a strong back to the basket game. We are very happy to add Eniko to our legacy of having high level Hungarian players at Duquesne."
