Vetroz, SWITZERLAND – Not even a month into her first season as a professional athlete, the Swiss Basketball League named the Muscogee (Creek) player Brice Calip the Most Valuable Player of the Week for Helios v. Pully on Oct. 22.
The Helios point guard conducted the win with a double-double and made 19 points, ten rebounds, eight steals, and six assists. She was the top-performing player in the game.
During her collegiate career, Calip played for the Missouri State Lady Bears, graduating last May 2022, and played in her hometown high school at Sapulpa, Okla.
According to Ozarks Sports Zone, Calip completed her Missouri State career with 122 career wins while playing in a program-record 163 career games, the Lady Bear with the most wins in program history. She also became the second to record over 1700 points, 500 assists, and 700 rebounds during her Lady Bear career. She averaged 11.5 points and 5.4 rebounds per game in her final season.
In late spring, Calip signed with the Swiss Basketball League. She reported to the team in early September to begin her first professional season.
Calip made strides over her collegiate career that continues to flow over into her professional career.
