  United Kingdom - Durham call upon Croatian veteran Tomljenovic  - by Paul Nilsen - 5 days ago

Durham Palatinates have made what could be one of the signings of the summer ahead of their debut WBBL campaign after sealing the services of Monika Tomljenovic (180-G-85, college: FIU), who has both EuroLeague Women and EuroBasket Women minutes on her resume.
The 31-year-old Croatian veteran will assume her new role with the north-east side and could be one of the names to watch out for in 2017-18 after adding her skills to the rookie WBBL club. She played for her country at EuroBasket Women 2013, has appeared for the likes of Lupa Promotion Novi Zagreb in Europe and was with KK Zvarner most recently, adding 14 points and 6 rebounds in 2015-16.
"It is a new country, a new team and new challenge for me. but after speaking with Coach [Lee] Davie about the team and the programme, I decided that Durham would be a perfect place for me to get back in professional basketball," saidTomljenovic.
"Since I have never been to UK, it will be an even bigger challenge, which I look forward to. I have also I got the opportunity to coach kids basketball, which I love just as much as playing.
"I really don't know what to expect because this is my first season in WBBL league and team is new to the league as well, so we will just give our best and try to win as many games as possible.
"I played college basketball in the States, spent a few years as a pro in Croatia and in other countries. Then my passion and love for basketball, which combined with team skills, will hopefully help us to win more games.
"We have good chemistry on and off the court. We work hard and that way we push each other to work even harder in practice to get better. Most of us come from different countries and it is always nice to get to know new people and to share one part of your life with them."
Coach Davie is delighted to have landed his latest recruit and commented: "Monika is a huge signing for us because after 4 years at Florida International followed by a successful career in Europe, she brings a wealth of experience to help establish our club in its rookie year.
"A consummate professional, she is already having a massive impact on our programme. Leading by example, she is fantastic role model in terms of her work ethic on the court, but just as important, but often over looked, is the lifestyle off the court.
"Our younger players have gone out of their way to make reference to how well she takes care of her body in reference to her nutrition, physical preparation and recovery.
"Monika's presence on the court will be felt by all as she has an engine that never seems to tire. Defensively she will chase, harass and disrupt you every step of the way, which I can see frustrating a lot of people.
A proven a scorer, she has the ability to hurt teams where ever she is on the floor.Monika's speed and quickness will make her very hard to guard, but her ability to stretch the floor with her shooting will be where her impact will be felt the most.
"That perimeter threat alone, will positively impact her teammates, creating more space for them to go to work. And, if you help off her, she will make you pay," added the play-caller.

"I am thankful for the opportunity Durham is giving to me and after speaking to Coach Davie, I decided that it will be a great place for me to be.
"I don't know what to expect because it will be my first year playing in WBBL , but I definitely expect us to win games, work hard and play good as a team. I believe I can bring passion, dedication and energy to the team. I am willing to work hard and get better as a player, but also be a good and helpful team mate. After playing 4 years in college and two years professional in Portugal and France, I believe that I can bring some experience to this team.
"My team mates are great on and off the court. They are all hard working and supportive, so I am happy to be a part of this group. I feel like our chemistry is great so far, so if we stick together and motivate each other to get better, I am sure we will have a good year."
She continued: "I am extremely happy that I have a chance to be a part of a Durham programme where I can combine study and playing basketball. I definitely enjoyed being a student athlete when I was in America, so I am sure it will be a great experience for me. I definitely planned on getting my masters degree, so studying and playing professional basketball at the same time will be a great challenge."
Coach Davie is also delighted with his new recruit and declared: "We are really excited to welcome Paula to both Durham University and Durham Palatinates. Bringing both American Collegiate and European experience to our programme, Paula has impressed me since arriving with her work ethic and desire to improve - something which will lead to some impressive performances in her time with us.
"Paula is extremely mobile, giving us a physical presence in transition. She has a good back to the basket post game when matched up against smaller players, and the ability to face up to take the taller players off the dribble.
"Defensively, she brings a lot of energy and passion to go a long with a physical presence inside. Paula's mobility and size will definitely allow her to be a disruptive force inside," concluded the play-caller.
