Eve Wembanyama was born on December 10, 2001. Eve Wembanyama’s father is Felix Wembanyama, and her mother is Elodie de Fautereau. As a track and field competitor, her dad took part in events including the long jump, triple jump, and high jump. Her mom has a background in basketball, both as a player and a trainer. She is the younger sibling of brothers named Victor and Oscar Wembanyama. Her brothers are NBA players: Victor, who recently signed with the San Antonio Spurs, and Oscar, who is on the rise.
Even as a child, Eve Wembanyama led a busy life. Her parents actively encouraged her to pursue a career in any sport of her choice because they were also athletes. She enjoyed playing basketball and it became one of her favourite sports. Her parents encouraged her to start actively taking part in the sport, and she did so. She entered many competitions while still a high school student. She moved to Lyon at the age of 14 to play for the prestigious basketball team ASVEL (Association Sportive de Villeurbanne Éveil Lyonnais).
Eve made her competitive basketball debut at the FIBA U16 Women’s European Championship in 2017. She played in five games throughout the tournament, contributing an average of 2.6 points per contest.

Eve Wembanyama Career
She began her professional club career in 2019 after signing with the Lyon squad LDLC ASVEL Feminin. However, she only played in three games and had one assist for the entire season. She had previously played with LFB’s Lyon Basketball Feminine (2019-20) and LF2’s Calais (2020-22). Eve won a gold medal with the French national basketball team at the 2017 European Championship and FIBA U16 World Championship.
After playing in LFB for a season, she moved to LF2 with Cote D’opale Basket Calais for the upcoming year. She had more chances to succeed given her increased playing time (30 games). Eve scored 30 points, had 10 assists, and grabbed 52 boards.
She scored 103 points during the 2021-22 season, her best year. She has 17 total appearances and pulled down 64 boards. Her stellar play prompted her to leave the club and sign with Monaco. There have been 14 games she has participated in so far this season. She’s a standout even though the team is having trouble. She scored 90 points, grabbed 75 boards, and dished out 25 assists. The LDLC ASVEL Feminin Club offered her a spot on their 2020 EuroLeague Women League squad.
A gluteus medius injury she suffered in 2022 didn’t slow her down, and by 2023 she was back in court. Eve’s talent and determination have also landed her an internship with the French team, where she has been able to observe and learn from Victoria Majekodunmi, the national team’s captain. Eve recognizes the importance of this season to her long-term development and is thankful to coach Régis Racine for the faith he has placed in her.
