Nicole
Powell
The former EL women champ, is still trying to find the right way to reach the top again. Having recently decided to go in a different direction with the appointment of head coach Victor Lapena, Perfumerias Avenida are certainly ready for a new chapter after deciding to terminate the contract of Nicole Powell (188-G/F-82, agency: LBM Management).

One of the standout performers in the competition last season, her summer switch to Salamanca from Wisla Can-Pack looked to be a real coup on paper, with the club hoping the American would spearhead their tilt at making the post-season

However in reality, it has turned out to be a hugely underwhelming relationship, with Avenida undoubtedly suffering from some under-par performances from the forward who has averaged a mediocre 9.6 points and 6.1 rebounds per game in a bitterly disappointing EuroLeague Women Group C campaign.

This is a far cry from her first stint with the club when she poured in 17.3 points per game and impressed so much that she was crowned a Euroleague Women All Star.
Having not played in the last game at CCC Polkowice, the club has decided to cut ties with the player and cancel her contract, citing off-court disciplinary reasons as being the main foundation for the decision.

Meanwhile on a more positive note, Coach Lapena has now taken up his position and described Salamanca as being "the best possible place for basketball in Spain" and also added that he wants to "earn the respect of my players since that's the most important factor."

Round 2 of Quarter-Finals. UMMC and Dynamo Kursk make it into Final Four - 15 days ago
Avenida - Fenerbahce 76-66 Avenida rolled past Fenerbahce to force the decider. The game was mostly controlled by Perfumerias Avenida. Fenerbahce managed to win fourth quarter 21-10. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Perfumerias Avenida made 16-of-20 free shots (80.0 percent) during the game. It was a great shooting night for Perfumerias Avenida especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 57.1 percentage. The best player for the winners was Ser...   [read more]
