Zez defines herself as “a fast player, with a lot of career and attacking in transition. I can score from any position, but my first option is always going to be to shoot from the triple. I can also post smaller players ”. The Serbian hopes “to adapt to the new environment as soon as possible, enjoy with the team and reach the Play Offs.”
Madelén Urieta has many gains from working with her. “She is a very ambitious and competitive player, with a lot of character. It will be his debut in the league, but I think he can adapt very well to the team’s style of play and has a lot of room for improvement. He can play both in the guard and forward position, and has a great scoring ability with very good percentages. His youth and hunger are going to give the team a plus in terms of aggressiveness ”.
