Barely three months but, surely, the most intense of the year, are those that Bella Alarie has been able to experience in Salamanca. With the continuity of the American pivot, Perfumerías Avenida closes the chapter of renovations in the workforce, betting on continuity and, as the interior itself shows, on youth again.
Bella landed in Salamanca to live the final stretch of the season, after Gajic’s injury, with hardly any professional experience in her hands but with all the desire to work and learn. This he has been achieving on a day-to-day basis, adapting perfectly to the group and, in addition, adding excellent performances in important moments, such as the third game of the Endesa Women’s League final, where he went to 14 points, being key to win the title. 8 points, 5 rebounds and a PIR of 11 in the playoffs, on average, speak of the progression in just 100 days of the American.
With the satisfaction of the experience, on the part of Bella, and that of the club before the potential of the player, the option to continue together seemed the best for everyone and, after his stint in the WNBA, which is playing with Dallas, Alarie will return to Salamanca to continue growing.
Bella Alarie: “I wanted to feel like family and enjoy myself and here I found it”
A “short but very intense” experience, that’s how Bella Alarie defines her three months in Salamanca. And it is that “from the moment I arrived, the team has welcomed me with open arms, I have enjoyed every moment on the court and the best thing has been the final title, but being able to play with these players who have taught me so much has It has been a great experience ”. Arriving in the middle of the season, “I wanted to feel like family, friends that I would love and enjoy the experience. The staff has done an incredible job with me, I feel that I have grown a lot in just three months and they are two fundamental points that I was looking for and I have found them in Salamanca ”, acknowledges the American. All this without neglecting the fans, “I love them, playing for them is one of the best experiences of my life.”
