Myisha Hines-Allen (1.85 m, 25 years old) will join Virtus Bologna next season. The American 3-4 post which operated at Lattes-Montpellier in 2020-2021 has shown the full extent of his talent. The New Yorker just ended a huge LFB season with stats worthy of an MVP with her 16.4 points at 44.8% shooting success with 9.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 interceptions for an evaluation of 18.9 in 31 minutes. For her first season, the one who also wears the colors of the Washington Mystics in the WNBA won the Coupe de France and reached the playoff final, notably scoring the basket of victory in the semi-final against Bourges. During the season, she made big boxes at 30 and 28 points against Nantes and ASVEL.
Bologna, a new stronghold for women’s basketball?
The Italian club Virtus Bologna is banking on its female branch by recruiting star players such as Brianna Turner (1.91 m, 24 years old) or the best player in the country, Cecilia Zandalasini (1.88 m, 25 years old), who played for Fenerbahçe in parallel with his WNBA career. Already over the past season, the club funded by patron Massimo Zanetti finished third in the regular season behind Venice and Schio before reaching the semi-final of the playoffs.
