|Alanna Jarry||Feb 3, 2017|
After advancing to the next round of the EuroCup finals, Rebecca Allen’s Good Angels Kosice enjoyed a win in their home league in Slovakia. Scoring 13 points and 5 rebounds was Allen, as her team capitalised on their athleticism to win 94-71.
In the Turkish league, Hatay fell 5 points short to a higher ranked Yakin Dogu BGD, but gave quite the scare to the dominant team. Nat Hurst led the team from the point for the entire game, and contributed 5 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists.
Things didn’t get much better for Hatay, as they suffered a harsh 1 point loss in EuroLeague to Villeneuve. Playing out of their skin, Hatay managed to dominate on the boards and give their opposition a huge scare. Hurst totalled 3 points and 6 rebounds for the game.
Tarbes were unlucky to go down by just 5 points to Nantes, however with an injured side that only had 7 players front up it was a good effort. Abby Bishop continued to dominate, scoring a double-double of 18 points and 12 rebounds.
Dynamo Moscow secured a win in Russia, overcoming MBA 83-70. Katie-Rae Ebzery had a dominant game with 10 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Alex Bunton contributed 2 points and 6 rebounds.
Nicole Romeo continues to stand out for Campus Promete in Spain, this week top scoring with 18 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals in their 66-71 win over Gran Canaria.
UNIQA Sopron enjoyed a huge win over MTK, stamping their authority in the Hungarian league to crush the opposition 110-51. They never looked in doubt, and Cayla George produced a standout performance with 12 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists and 4 steals.
Unfortunately, things didn’t go quite as easily in Sopron’s EuroLeague encounter against Nadezhda as they fell short 89-69. George did not play in this match, as her team fronted up short with 8 players for the game.
