Day 10 of the LF Endesa has not disappointed. A weekend marked in red on the calendar with the first major league Classic of the season. A high-flying meeting that, in addition to leaving us the victory in Salamanca of the Spar Girona, leaves us the MVP of the day. A distinction that falls on Rebekah Gardner. Arriving this summer at LF Endesa, it has taken little time to show its qualities.
And it is that the American forward shone with his own light in Würzburg. A spectacular performance for Spar Girona to hit the court at Perfumerías Avenida. Omnipresent and accurate, Gardner went up to 35 valuation credits thanks to a 20-point card (7/8 in field goals and 6/7 in free throws), 11 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 recoveries and 4 fouls received.
With barely ten games of experience in Spain (eleven if we include the LF Endesa Super Cup), Gardner adds his first MVP of the Day at LF Endesa to his resume. And it does so with 35 valuation credits, the highest figure reached so far this season. In addition to his excellent performance in Salamanca, Gardner (in the Top-5 of scorers and who already warned last week by sneaking into the Ideal Quintet) has taken a step forward in a Spar Girona that accumulates six victories in a row. Those of Alfred Julbe begin to take cruising speed.
The ideal quintet of the day:
- Base: Aina Ayuso (Campus Promete), 30 val: 20 points, 4 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 steals and 8 fouls received
- Escort: Sierra Calhoun (Casademont Zaragoza), 22 val: 16 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 6 fouls received
- Small forward: Rebekah Gardner (Spar Girona), 35 val: 20 points (7/8 TC and 6/7 TL), 11 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 recoveries and 4 received fouls
- Power forward: Mariam Coulibaly (IDK Euskotren), 34 val: 24 points (12/15 TC), 11 rebounds, 2 blocks and 5 fouls received
- Center: Sika Koné (SPAR Gran Canaria), 26 val: 20 points, 10 rebounds and 4 fouls received.
