Possessing plenty of court smarts and an unerring ability to get the job done by utilising any aspect of her extensive skill-set, Cruz remains an essential ‘glue' player for Spain. Her importance can be measured by the fact she was handed the second most minutes in qualification by Coach Mondelo who knows that if there is a steal to be grabbed, a defensive charge to be taken, or a crucial shot to be made, she is always there as an option. Her impressive basketball IQ, in conjunction with her desire; make her a tough cookie to break. With the added experience gained from recent seasons in EuroLeague Women with Rivas Ecopolis whom she won domestic silverware, she's now got even more valuable experience to add.
