The IDK Euskotren basketball club of the LF Endesa league, based in San Sebastian, Spain, has announced the signing of 23-year-old Manitoban Niyah Becker for the upcoming season. 

Becker was the second-best scorer at ZKK Cinkarna Celje in the Slovenian SKL league last season. In 20 WABA games, she was the league's fifth-best scorer with an impressive 15.3 points per game, along with 5.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 2.1 steals (ranking in the top 5), and 1.4 blocks per game. She played a crucial role in helping her team win both the WABA and Slovenian SKL championships.

Her outstanding performance earned her multiple accolades, including All-WABA Center of the Year, League Player of the Week, and a spot on the All-WABA First Team. In the SKL, she played 25 games, averaging 14.2 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 2.7 steals, and 1.9 blocks per game, contributing significantly to her team's SKL title and cup victory.

Becker has also been a part of the Canadian international program for several years. She played for the Canadian Senior National Team in 2018 and previously for the Under-18 National Team the same year. Additionally, she represented Canada at the World Cup U19 in Bangkok, Thailand, five years ago.

The 6'2" forward graduated from Wake Forest University in 2023, and this will be her second season in professional basketball. Becker also played for the University of Utah for three years before transferring to Wake Forest.
