Tania Pérez is having her best season in Liga Femenina
Tania Pérez is playing brilliantly in Cadí
la Seu and with 9.1 points, 2.7 rebounds and +9.4 efficiency in 26 minutes per
game is becoming a key player for the Catalan team, helping them to be in seventh
place in the Spanish First Division League with a record of 6 wins and 5
This is the Tania's fifth season in Cadí la Seu
where she twice reached the Semifinals of the Championship and is improving her
game every year. Last season her team was excruciatingly close to playing in
the Final after defeating Perfumerías Avenida in the second game of the
Semifinals. In that playoff, La Seu d'Urgell's team had a great contribution
from Tania averaging 9.7 points and 4 rebounds in 29 minutes per game.
The Catalan guard is the team's captain and
with her courage, her work and her constancy, is ensuring Cadí la Seu remains
one of the top teams in the competition.
Tania, you have played
five seasons in the Cadí la Seu and every year you have improved your game and
your statistics. This year, in addition to leading the team being the captain,
you are also having great numbers (9.1 points, 2.7 rebounds and +9.4 efficiency
in 26 minutes per game). How are you feeling on the court?
The truth is that I'm feeling like I have
stepped up in my knowledge of the competition and also, Cadí's basketball style
in these last two years suits my way to play perfectly.
I'm feeling so comfortable in the high pressure
that we are playing on defense and in offense we are playing without systems,
so we must read what the defense does and we play in consequence to that.
After playing 11
rounds and just remaining two to finish the first half of the season, Cadí la
Seu is in the seventh place in the competition and currently is having a good
streak of three consecutive wins. How is the season going so far?
Our start to the season wasn't the best, but we
kept working to construct a team and currently, finally we are one. I can say
that we are a whole new team because there are just 4 players that resigned
I think that we have great and versatile
players where we can have better performances. Now the team is having a good
streak and we must keep working to try to win the last two games before the
To finish the first
half of the season, the calendar gives your team a little break having two
games, that a priori, should not be so difficult against Quesos el Pastor de la
Polvoro and Star Center -Uni Ferrol. What is your impression of these two games
and how do you see the qualification to the Queen's Cup?
Like you correctly said a priori. In this
league you can win or lose against any team, so these last two games will be
hard to win. We must play with 100% of our energy and remain focused for the entire
The qualification to the Queen's Cup is in our
mind but first we need to win these two games and wait for the results of the
others. Our philosophy has always been to go week by week without thinking
beyond the next game and if at the end we qualify in the Cup, we will try to
play hard and enjoy it!
Last summer your team
have had some changes, like the change of the coach and the departure of some key
players, like the point guard Hind Ben Abdelkader. What is your impression of
Cadí la Seu 2015-16 compared to previous years?
I don't like the to compare the different teams
that this club has had along the seasons because actually, all of them have
been very different.
This year we have players that weren't here
last season and who are doing great performances. I believe in all of them and
I'm sure that this current team will have lots of good moments and will fight in
all the matches.
We are a very young team with an incredible
ability to work and like I said before, the versatility is one of our strengths.
For instance, our post players are so mobile and they can shoot from long
distance, and our guards can play situations in the low post.
For all this, I think the Cadí of this season
has something very special and we will continue working to offer the best of
ourselves in the remainder of the season.
In the last two rounds
you have had another change with the signing of Nicole Romeo. She has already
scored 24 points (with a good shot selection) and +23 efficiency in her first
37 minutes in Liga Femenina. How has she adapted and what can she contribute to
Yes, the truth is that Nicole gives us quality
minutes when she is on the court. Her adaptation has been great and she is a
I hope that she will keep helping us like she
is doing now, especially her contributions with her good one and one and her long
I can imagine after
five seasons playing for Cadí la Seu you have enjoyed many experiences. Choose
the best memory of all these years.
Certainly, I have a large variety of good
moments along these many years but I would say the day that we beat Perfumerías
Avenida in our home court in the Semifinals of the competition.
I remember that day because the gym was full
with our supporters and they could enjoy it a lot. And of course, we enjoyed beating
them so much too!
