IDK Euskotren is one of the fittest teams in LF Endesa. With Coulibaly, Adams, Spain, Harden… hoarding the highlights, the Croatian Andrijana Cvitkovic is the player who lays the cement to unite everyone’s work. Good defender, her work in attack is focused more on getting comfortable shots for her teammates than on looking for the basket.

But on Sunday in Vitoria he signed his best performance. 17 points with a splendid series of 8 of 11 in field goals and 1 of 1 in free throws; 13 rebounds, 2 of them offensive, 3 blocks, 1 assist, 1 recovery and 4 fouls received for a total of 32 PIR.

Anecdotal section:

This award is the second with Croatian nationality of the season, after the one on matchday 2 won by Tenerife center Ivana Tikvic. The last days have seen a leading role for European players with awards for the German Marie Gülich (matchday 21), the Dutch Emese Hof (matchday 22) and this one for the Croatian Andrijana Cvitkovic.

IDK Euskotren is not a very common team in the MVP awards and only Mariam Coulibaly has won the weekly MVP once this season (matchday 21) and last (matchday 30). To see a different protagonist, you would have to go back to February 2020 with the great Laura García.

The ideal quintet of the day:

The ideal quintet of this day 23 leaves us an outside line with many points in the hands, with a Cristina Ouviña in a state of grace and two quality forwards like the Americans from Lointek Gernika, Angel Bjorklund and the one from SPAR Girona, Kennedy Burke. All three won their respective matches.

The ideal interior tandem also won their respective matches. Two players not used to the spotlight who have shone on this day: Lointek Gernika’s power forward, Paula Ginzo; and the IDK Euskotren center Andrijana Cvitkovic, the MVP of the day.
