How does someone who's 165-centimetres tall end up with a game-high 14 rebounds? Effort, timing and speed.
Canberra Capitals guard Olivia Epoupa was one of a number of players who starred in the 76-59 thrashing of the Perth Lynx in Perth on Sunday.
It meant the Capitals split their road trip and climbed to equal second on the WNBL ladder.
Epoupa also scored 10 points and produced seven assists in the win that was set up with a second quarter blitz - going from all square at quarter-time to a 15-point lead at the main break.
Kia Nurse (23 points) was damaging from beyond the three-point arc, while Capitals co-captain Marianna Tolo (21) again took down a WNBA player - this time Imani McGee-Stafford.
Perth captain Katie Ebzery played a lone hand for the Lynx, scoring a game-high 25 points.
Capitals coach Paul Goriss needs his team to cover the massive hole left by league MVP Kelsey Griffin (ankle) and Epoupa's rebounding was part of that.
"Rebounding is an effort thing, but the thing with Oli is she reads the game so well," Goriss said.
"She times when she can go and get rebounds and it's because she is so quick.
"When it's a smaller player on the court getting them it certainly helps us get extra possessions and it's great having that extra rebounding presence without Kelsey."

While they've got the tough Adelaide-Perth road trip out of the way, it doesn't get any easier next weekend.
Canberra travels to Bendigo to take on the cellar-dweller Spirit on Friday night before returning to host Perth at the AIS on Sunday.
Goriss said this weekend would give the squad the belief they can handle it.
"We know that we game play an uptempo game on the second game of a road trip with travel," he said.
"That stands us in good stead for these double games we've got coming up."
