Cristina Ouviña, one of the best bases in the old continent, has chosen Valencia Basket to play next season: “I have been wanting to return to Spain and Valencia had a project that excited me a lot . The city is incredible and is close to Zaragoza, which is my land. Also the values that have equality in the feminine and the masculine make everything add up and make you want to sign here ”, as he has declared to RTVE.
“ You have to try to win titles “
The international base believes that they should be "at the top of the league. It is a club that has been growing little by little and that wants to go one step further. Last season they were already fighting at the top and I think that this year it will be possible much more, to try to be winning titles ".
