Carol Quiñones (wolf) is a Puerto Rican professional basketball player for the Arizona Whips of the Furry Basketball Association (FBA).

Biography

Carol Quiñones was born into a poor family, but one who was able to keep a decent house on the outskirts of Mayaguez. Carol had three brothers and one sister and their ways of having fun involved going into the city and hanging out. What little spending money they had, they pooled to spend on things together.

Some days, they'd grab the family's old sports equipment and go out to an open space and just have fun playing baseball or soccer. There was also a small run down basketball court and Carol seemed to particularly enjoy playing there. It wasn't uncommon to see her playing there until the surrounding street lights were turned on, her long black hair matted with sweat..

In 2007, her life changed when news began to spread of a super-talented teenager playing for the San Juan Stars. Checking into it, Carol became an instant fan of Vera La Tiérra, watching the vixen score 35 points in a rout of the Mayaguez Giants on the family television. She watched every Stars game she could, wowed by Vera's acrobatic skills and take-charge command of her game.

Inspired by Vera's example, Carol worked harder to improve her basketball skills, regularly beating her brothers and then making her high school squad. As she had grown, her tall, lanky frame became an asset, giving her a superb hookshot and some rebounding skills. However, her defense needed a bit of a work when it came to a team. Her best defense was just being a body and getting the occasional block.

Carol's first big break was getting noticed by Greek scouts from the European Furry Basketball League. After some negotiation, aided by convincing from her family, Carol skipped college and went pro, signing a two-year contract with the Heraklion Warriors. She performed decently for them, averaging about 8 points and pulling down 5 rebounds a game her first season in Greece.

The pinnacle of Carol's amateur career came when she was named to the World Jam squad in the fall of last year. It was a dream come true to work with the vixen that she idolized. She could barely speak when she first met her, only able to congratulate her on her wedding that August. But Carol found that she didn't want to settle for just meeting her. She wanted to impress Vera, but she wanted to win as well. When practicing for the preliminaries, Vera noticed Carol's determination and decided to get her and their teammate Ricardo Rodrigues involved as much as possible.

The strategy worked brilliantly. Vera discovered Carol had a lot of potential with her inside moves, soft shooting touch and deceptive speed on fast breaks. With the tall wolfess's help, Puerto Rico made it all the way to the semi-finals. Her defining moment, though, was one in celebration: when Sebastian Kosciusko's three pointer at the buzzer missed, Vera screamed with delight and made a beeline to Carol, who grabbed her in a hug and the two hopped and bounced in celebration with Ricardo joining in.

Carol scored 92 points in the World Jam tournament, the top scorer of any non-FBA player. She hopes to score much more in the FBA.
