Tinara Moore, MVP of the Women’s League 2020, signs with Gernika

Tinara Moore joins the Lointek Gernika Bizkaia discipline and will be the internal reference for the 2021/2022 season. The American comes from the Hungarian Cegled and is an old acquaintance of the Endesa Women’s League after passing especially through CADÍ La Seu in the 2019/2020 campaign when she was named MVP of the competition. The 25-year-old, 189-centimeter-tall center has averaged 13.9 points and 6.4 rebounds in the Hungarian league and her numbers have soared in the EuroCup Women to 22.8 rebounds and 9.3 rebounds. With this new addition, Lointek Gernika Bizkaia now has up to 10 players on the squad with the renewals of Belén Arrojo, Rosó Buch, Itziar Ariztimuño, Paula Ginzo, Marge Roundtree, Angie Bjorklund and Marta Alberdi along with the signings of Melisa Brcaninovic and Roselis Silva.

Tinara Moore took her first steps at the University of Central Michigan when she was named best player and best defender in the Mid American conference. Her leap to professionalism was nothing more and nothing less than in Valencia Basket, where she made her debut in the Endesa Women’s League for both the player and the club. It was not a simple premiere since it did not have too many minutes, yet it still caught the attention of CADÍ La Seu for the 2019/2020 season. On Catalan soil he produced his best version with averages of 15.3 points and 6.9 rebounds for a total of 18.5 PIR credits. A few more than enough numbers to be named best player and best center of the Endesa Women’s League. Thanks to this, he made the leap to Europe with his signing for the Hungarian Cegled. Tinara Moore has averaged 13.9 points and 6.4 rebounds in the Hungarian league and her numbers have soared in the EuroCup Women to 22.8 rebounds and 9.3 rebounds. In fact, she has been the fourth top scorer in the European competition and the seventh best rebounder.

Now it comes to the Lointek Gernika Bizkaia and will undoubtedly be the interior reference under the boards. Throughout her career, the American has developed more and better movements to the post to which she has added greater solidity in the medium-distance throw. In addition, his nose for the rebound remains intact where he is able to make second and third efforts with the aim of continuously loading the hoop. This is how Gernikarra coach Mario López analyzes his incorporation: “She is a player who in her three years in Europe has had a constant progression and we hope that in Gernika she will continue to grow as a player. Tinara is a pivot capable of running the counterattack, with points in interior areas both in the low post or after direct blocking, with a good hand at 5 meters. She occupies well the spaces in the game without the ball, in addition to being generous in defense. He meets the conditions of the 5 that we were looking for and I hope that his contribution in points from his position will help us to balance our attack game “
