The Malian has been in Spain for three seasons, although she is not yet 20 years old. Gnere Dembele is one of the African players who dominates the tables of the matches of group A. The player of Vega Lagunera Adareva signed a masterful match in the Canarian derby which ended this Thursday on the 14th day.
The MVP of this day was long overdue and arrived in the penultimate match, played this Thursday in Lanzarote. The Magectías Against Gender Violence received the Vega Lagunera Adareva which needed victories. The Tenerife players arrived without Alba Peña and after losing to Barakaldo on the last day of the year.
But the physical power of Gnere Dembele prevailed at the Municipal de Tías in a spectacular last quarter. In the 33 minutes she was on the pitch, she scored 34 points (nearly 50% of those scored by her team), with a 15 of 21 streak in 2s and 4s of 7s on free throws. She dared to throw an award-winning shot that she missed, captured 11 rebounds, including 4 in attack. She distributed 4 assists and placed a block, for a total of 40 valuation points.
Magectías CVG held on until the last quarter, in which they scored 9 points ahead, but the 11-28 race in the final ten minutes was key, with 12 points from Dembele included. A victory which places them in 7th place in the standings, with a balanced record of 7-7.
Gnere Dembele is a very powerful center, measuring 1.86 and who will be 20 years old. A player who has played with her country, Mali, the U17 World Cups in Zaragoza and the U19 World Cups in Italy. He reached the 1st division with La Salle Melilla and made his debut in LF2 precisely against the rival with whom she obtained her first MVP, Magectías CVG. She also had a good season last year at HGB Ausarta Barakaldo.
Dembele is the top scorer in Group A (19.5 points per game) and is fighting for the title of MVP of the season of this group with two other rivals of African origin: the Nigerians Princess Aghayere (Extremadura Miralvalle) and Ijeoma Uchendo (HGB Ausarta Barakaldo), precisely Dembele’s replacement in the Basque team.
