They dominated the game from the beginning to begin to tip the balance from the initial jump. But the good work of Spar Girona in their visit to A Malata was supported by the great match starring one of their players, specifically a stellar Kennedy Burke on the outside line to sign their best match of the course. A total of 42 valuation points that, if that were not enough, will become the new top of a season in which no other player has been able to sign better numbers.
And it is that, the North American foreign, surprised Baxi Ferrol with 29 points (4/5 TL and 10/14 TC), 11 rebounds, 1 assist, 4 recoveries, 2 blocks and 2 fouls received that were well worth a new triumph from Girona in the highway (64-94).
After emerging with force both in her university journey and in her first summers as a WNBA player, Kennedy Burke has won the first award of her career in the national territory on this day. A title that joins the brilliant career signed while passing through Italy and that has confirmed the North American player as one of the best scorers on the international scene. In this way, Burke picks up the witness of his teammate Rebeka Gardner who managed to win the award of Day 12 just a few days ago.
The ideal quintet of the day:
On a provisional basis given that there is still a pending match, the ideal quintet of the day has been taking shape with superb performances throughout the first seven matches played. The first of them, without excessive fortune, since Laia Raventos (Cadí La Seu) could not avoid the defeat of his team in Salamanca despite his good game. A luck totally opposite to that of a decisive Arica Carter (Movistar Estudiantes) at the Movistar Academy or that experienced by MVP Kennedy Burje (Spar Girona) in the authoritarian Girona victory in A Malata.
Already in interior positions, the talent came from the Josean Gasca duel with the face to face between Miriam Coulibaly (IDK Euskotren) and Sika Koné (Spar Gran Canaria) with which both players fought hard for a victory that ended up falling back on hands of the first.
