Incredibly impressive on a 3×3 scale After a historic 2022, capped by her MVP performance in the Crelan FIBA 3×3 World Cup 2022, Laetitia Guapo was crowned France’s greatest basketball player of the year.
The French Basketball Federation inaugurated the Alain-Gilles award in 2015, and the 26-year-old became just the second woman to win it. In order to choose the winners, the public, five media representatives, and six representatives from basketball institutes assess both international tournament results and club performances.
After leading France to a historic double in the World Cup 2022 and the FIBA 3×3 Europe Cup 2022, Guapo was a deserving successor to Nicolas Batum, a basketball player for the Los Angeles Clippers and silver medalist at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

France won their first global championship since 1998 thanks in large part to the efforts of their 6ft (1.82m) untiring slasher, who led the team in scoring in Antwerp and scored a game-high five points in the championship game against Canada.
Guapo scored 35 points to tie for second on the team as France won the Europe Cup in Graz, Austria, defeating the Netherlands in the final.
The world’s fourth-best player was also a major factor in France’s second-place result at the FIBA 3×3 Women’s Series 2022, where she ranked third in total scoring (with 136 points).
Her incredible year didn’t end there, however; she also contributed to the success of her French basketball team, Tango Bourges Basket, helping them win many trophies, including the FIBA EuroCup Women 2021-22.
