More Nadia! Nadia Fingall (center, 1.92m, 1998 USA) and Movistar Estudiantes have reached an agreement to renew the contract that linked both parties since last summer.
Fingall was the first signing of the “Women in black” for last year, coming from the Nou Bàsquet Paterna of the second Spanish category, the old Women’s League 2.
In the linked team of Valencia Basket, he stood out in what was his first professional year after having shone in the NCAA with Stanford University (Final Four in 2017, Sweet 16 and Elite 8 in the following two years).
Nadia Fingall’s adaptation to the Endesa Women’s League was immediate, performing at a high level from the first day, also maintaining tremendous regularity. She has been the best Movistar Estudiantes player in PIR (13.7), second highest scorer (11.9 points per game in the regular phase) and highest rebounder (7.43 and 8th in the entire league) in the Endesa Women’s League.
Numbers that were even better in Eurocup Women: 10.8 points and 9.1 rebounds per game for a PIR of 15.1, the best of the team in these last two aspects.
After finishing the Endesa Women’s League, Nadia Fingall joined the Astros Jalisco team of the Sisnova LNBP Women’s League in Mexico, along with former collegiate Arica Carter. Fingall is being one of the standout players on the Astros, who at the time of this writing have qualified for the zone final.
With the confirmation of the continuity of Fingall, there are now ten pieces that Movistar Estudiantes has for the 2022-23 season in the Endesa Women’s League and Eurocup Women: coach David Gallego, the continuities of Meli Gretter, María Espín and Bego de Santiago, the promotion to the first team of Paula Saravia and the signings of Becky and Billie Massey, Laura Méndez and Alexy Mollenhauer.
