Avenida Have Their MVP Lyttle Coming Back

06.05.2010

Halcon Avenida will have leading scorer and rebounder Sancho Lyttle returning for another season.

The 26-year-old power forward was virtually unstoppable in 2009-10, averaging 17.6 points and 10.8 rebounds per game for Avenida in the EuroLeague Women.

Lyttle led the club into the Quarter-Finals, where they were eliminated by Ros Casares.

The 1.90m Lyttle was so good that she could have walked into the starting line-ups of many teams, but Avenida have tied her down before the summer.

Jorge Recio, the head of the first team sport and vice president of Avenida, spoke about retaining Lyttle.

"It has been the most difficult signing in the history of Perfumerias Avenida but we wanted to maintain, with the effort that this means for the company, guarantees and hope for the next season."

Lyttle is now getting ready for the WNBA season with the Atlanta Dream.

Avenida should be among the leading clubs in Europe next year.

Beaten finalists in 2009, the club has been linked with Erika De Souza and Anna Montanana.

Ros Casares recently announced that both players would not return to the Valencia club next season.
