Little Rock Women’s Basketball added height and more international experience to its roster as head coach Joe Foley announced the signing of Paloma Iradier to a National Letter of Intent.
Iradier was selected to play in LF2 last season, one of the top senior leagues in Spain, where she averaged 8.0 points and 13.6 rebounds for CB Islas Canarias. This came after playing the previous two seasons at CD Calasanz where she averaged 15.8 points and 16.3 rebounds during the 2018-19 season.
“We are excited about having Paloma coming to Little Rock, she will give us an inside presence with her height and length both on the offensive and defensive ends of the floor,” Foley said. “I am looking forward to the opportunity of coaching her.”
The Iradier family is widely regarded as a talented basketball family name in her native Spain. Her mother, Rosa Ruiloba, is known as Spain’s best post player on the national team in the late 1980s and early 1990s while her brother, Carlos Iradier, plays professional basketball in Spain.
