In the absence of the match between Cadí La Seu and SPAR Girona, the 21st day ends with an MVP shared by two players who dominate in the paint. Mariam Coulibaly (IDK Euskotren) and Marie Gülich (Valencia BC) were decisive in the victories of their respective teams.
Above 1.90, the two players who share the MVP of this 21st day dominate the ‘five’ of this LF Endesa. The Malian from IDK Euskotren is already a regular in weekly rankings and MVPs when she is only 24 years old. Valencia BC’s German debuts with the title, increasing her numbers after Raquel Carrera’s injury.
Coulibaly was instrumental in IDK Euskotren’s most disputed victory this season. Faced with a Baxi Ferrol who did not give up despite falling behind in the fourth quarter, Mariam Coulibaly collected 16 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists, for a total of 26 PIR points; and all this in almost 42 minutes of play.
Gülich practically retraced the Malian’s numbers, with 15 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists, for a total of 26 PIR points. Without Raquel Carrera or Celeste Trahan Davis, the German had to multiply to defend the indoor game of Campus Promete (Geldof-Diarra) and be a reference in attack.
Mariam Coulibaly was weekly MVP with the shirts of Spar Gran Canaria, Snatt’s Sant Adrià and IDK Euskotren, the three teams with which she competed in LF Endesa. The first two were in October 2016 in the ranks of the Canarian team with 18 points and 19 rebounds when he was still 19 years old. With Sant Adriá de Snatt she won two more in the 2018/19 season and in her second season in Donostia she already has a new MVP title. Of course, in the race for the most popular player of the season, she is in second place, only behind her compatriot Sika Koné.
For her part, Marie Gülich opens with her first weekly MVP title. In a team with more distribution of offensive responsibilities, the German pivot improves the workforce after the injury of Raquel Carrera.
The ideal quintet of the day:
This day leaves us with a very talented quintet, led by the players of Valencia BC and IDK Euskotren, winners of their respective duels. The taronjas won on a combative Campus Promete with a great Cristina Ouviña (best leader of the day), and the MVP Marie Gülich (15+8).
The San Sebastian women “put forward” Joy Adams (11 + 14) and Mariam Coulibaly (16 + 8) in quintet during the epic match of two extensions against Baxi Ferrol. The quintet is completed by one of the most in-form players, the American from Lointek Gernika Lashann Higgs, who could not prevent the defeat at the Movistar Academy Magariños.
