This season she has averaged 6.2 points and 4.6 rebounds for 10.6 EIR credits per game in Endesa Women’s League and 6.3 points and 6.3 rebounds in EuroCup Women. At 26, the Granada-born woman has established herself as one of the best in her position with her nose for rebounding, wonderful off-the-ball play and her greatest daring in the face of the basket. In addition, it has been the main defensive pillar of the Gernikarras thanks to its versatility. A player that every coach wants on his team.
Fortunately, it will only be from Lointek Gernika Bizkaia, and for the third consecutive season. Arrojo has found her ideal place in Gernika, where she has progressed more and better until she is a regular in the calls of the Spanish National Team. Its evolution is continuous, especially in the offensive section. Increasingly daring for the rim and just as solid in defense. In attack he continues to be spectacular in the game without the ball, either to score baskets under the rim or to charge the offensive rebound and achieve second shooting opportunities. In defense it has been, is and will be the fundamental pillar through which all the solidity of the garnet ones turns.
Belén Arrojo admits that her renewal with Lointek Gernika Bizkaia has been “very simple” due to “how comfortable I have felt these last two seasons, a very good job is being done at all levels”. “It is a different and unique club, a real family,” remarks the Granada-born. The forward is ambitious for the 2021/2022 campaign: “First and foremost, to feel the heat of the maroon tide in Maloste again.
Then continue taking steps forward personally and collectively hand in hand with the club in all competitions, both in the Endesa Women’s League and in EuroCup Women ”.
Belén Arrojo is the first piece of the Lointek Gernika Bizkaia for the 2021/2022 season. It will not be easy to make history again and repeat, for example, a Super Cup final, the semi-finals of the Queen’s Cup and Endesa Women’s League or the eighth of the EuroCup Women. Everything has a beginning.
