The remarkable season that the IDK Euskotren is signing experienced a new high point on Saturday afternoon. The team led by Azu Muguruza achieved an outstanding victory against Cadí La Seu, which they could well face in a few weeks at the start of the playoffs. For the moment, IDK Euskotren maintains fifth position thanks to Mariam Coulibaly who dominated in the paint against Cadí.
With 27 points, 10 rebounds and 6 fouls received, Coulibaly was a real nightmare for the defense of the team led by Bernat Canut. An outstanding performance that reinforces the second most valued player so far this year.
Just a few days after ‘losing’ the MVP achieved on Matchday 21 after the dispute of the last game that was postponed, Coulibaly vindicated himself by achieving his first MVP of the season. His rating of 38 credits, the third best individual rating to date, Coulibaly thus manages to be the weekly MVP with the three different teams he has passed through in the LF Endesa: SPAR Gran Canaria, Snatt’s Sant Adrià and IDK Euskotren.
The ideal quintet of the day:
Three players have reached 30 valuation credits on Day 28. Three very versatile interiors that allow Plaisance to occupy the small forward position due to his ability to play outside. Brcaninovic happens to share a partner in the area with Coulibaly. Nesbitt and Atkinson complete the ideal quintet.
- Base: Valerie Nesbitt (SPAR Gran Canaria): PIR 19: 20 points and 6 assists.
- Shooting guard: Tanaya Atkinson (Kutxabank Araski): 23 PIR: 12 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 fouls received.
- Eaves: Theresa Plaisance (Tenerife): 30 PIR: 18 points, 15 rebounds and 5 fouls received.
- Power forward: Melissa Bracaninovic (Lointek Gernika): 31 PIR: 20 points, 8 rebounds and 7 fouls received.
- Pivot: Mariam Coulibaly (IDK Euskotren): 38 PIR: 27 points, 10 rebounds and 6 fouls received.
