Shooting mid-range:

  • Pull up mid-range shots are one of the features she trusts.
  • The most important feature of her mid-range shots is reading the defense and her shooting preferences and the fact that she played with 50% shooting accuracy in this position made her one of the most important shooters in European basketball.

Free Throws:

  • Her draw foul rate skill is not too much.
  • It is very important that she makes free throws with 83% but as she doesn’t get into foul-taking contacts too much, she scores (1.30 / 1.80 72) points per match.


  • She initiates rapid attack with ball but she is not very brisk on fast break or transition attacks without the ball.

Overall Outlook: — • She has problems in defense situations.  She needs to improve her weakness in mass player defense. • She avoids contact basketball. • He doesn’t prefer to be too much in rebound positions. The reason for this is that she does not want to be in contact there.

Overall Outlook ++ She is among the best shooters of her generation . * She plays catch and shot or pull up with very high accuracy. * She has the feature of going to the circle when it is defended very closely. * Her basketball and spacing on the attack knowledge are high level. * Reka, one of the most important shooter players trained by Hungarian basketball, will seriously close the deficit (the number 3 player problem) in European basketball in the upcoming periods. She has short post-up finishes. She can start the game from the short corner according to tactical preferences.

Personality: * She is a player that will solve the problem of shooter and steering shooter forward, which are lacking numerically and in terms of efficiency in European basketball. • Her Wnba chance will be decisive in her performance in Europe. • As soon as she works and removes her weakness in defense, she will become a much more special player. • She will definitely show herself at the Euroleague level. • She  reminiscent of Anna Dabovic’s style of play.   It is her greatest chance that she is a Euroleague women-level shooter, has knowledge of the game and comes from the basketball school.
