Women’s national basketball player Kristīne Vītols will continue her career at the Hungarian club DVTK


Last year, 29-year-old Vītols represented the Spanish club “Perfumerias Avenida” in Salamanca.

She scored an average of 8.1 points and 4.9 rebounds in 22 games in the Spanish Championship, while throwing 10.7 points in an average of 10.7 points and 5.3 balls under the baskets in the FIBA ​​Eurocup. Salamanca’s team was the leader at the end of the Spanish championship, but did not expect a quarter-final fight in the Eurocup.

After graduating from the University of Texas, Vītola joined the Spanish team Zaragoza’s Mann-Filter in the summer of 2014, but the following season she represented Perfumerias Avenida, which made its debut in the FIBA ​​Euroleague and triumphed in the Spanish Championship.

She started the next season in the Spanish championship team, but was not satisfied with her playing time, so the contract was terminated at the athlete’s initiative. Already in early October, she joined Istanbul’s “Galatasaray”, which made it to the semifinals of the Turkish Championship and the FIBA ​​Eurocup.

After that, he spent the season in the team of the Polish top league in Gdynia “Basket 90”, but in the 2018/2019 season he played in the team “TTT Rīga”, helping it to reach the quarterfinals of the Euroleague.

Vītola has played in three European Championship finals and the 2018 World Cup. In the Latvian national team, Vītola has gone on the field in 77 games, in which he scored on average 6.6 points and won 4.9 rebounds.

The Miskolc team in Hungary is the second strongest after the Sopron club. Last season, DVTK did not beat the FIBA ​​Euroleague qualification in a dramatic battle and continued the season in the Eurocup, where they stopped in the first round of the elimination tournament.

Aija Putniņa, Zenta Melņika and Liene Jansone used to play in this unit.
