Carla
Cortijo
Atlanta Dream landed 29-year old Puerto Rican ex-international guard Carla Cortijo (172-87, college: Texas, agency: Gamble Sports Management). It is actually her comeback to Atlanta Dream as she played here before. Cortijo played in the summer at Gigantes de Carolina in Puerto Rican BSNF. In 20 games she averaged impressive 17.6ppg, 4.6rpg and 5.4apg. She helped them to win the league title. It was a very successful season in her career as she was awarded Latinbasket.com All-Puerto Rican BSNF Forward of the Year, All-Star Game and selected to All-Domestic Players Team. Cortijo also played at Atlanta that season. In two games she had 7.0ppg, 1.0apg and 1.0spg. The other team she played that season for was Gigantes (BSNF) in Puerto Rico. In 20 games she had very remarkable stats: 17.6ppg, 4.6rpg and 5.4apg. She contributed to her team winning the league title. She can count that season as a very successful as was awarded Latinbasket.com All-Puerto Rican BSNF Forward of the Year, All-Star Game and selected to All-Domestic Players Team.
Among other achievements Cortijo received Latinbasket.com All-Puerto Rican BSNF Comeback Player of the Year award back in 2012. She also represented Puerto Rico at the Panamerican Games in Toronto (Canada) last year. Her stats at that event were 3 games: Score-2 (19.7ppg), 4.7rpg, Assists-5 (3.3apg), 1.3spg, FGP: 42.6%, FT: 79.2%.
Cortijo is a very experienced player.
She graduated from University of Texas in 2009 and it will be her seventh season in pro basketball.
Let's have closer look into Cortijo's outlook: Carla is an excellent ball handler who can find her open teammates, can penetrate into the lane and drive to the basket to score, and can step outside and make the 3-point shot. She is a very strong on-the-ball defender, athletic and fast. Although she can play in any style of offense, she excels in pushing the ball on the fast break and setting up her teammates for easy baskets. She is a member of the Puerto Rico National Team - the starting point guard, and has a significant amount of FIBA Tournament experience playing against the top national team players.
