EuroCup Qualifiers Game 1 October 5th-7th

The qualifiers for EuroCup started with three series opening on Wednesday. Each pairing will play two games, one at each team’s home, with the combined scores determining which team advances to group play and which team has their continental adventure end. The first game saw Lattes Montpellier figure that a young squad would get the job done in Croatia and they won 68-53 over Jelena Ivezic and Plamen Pozega to bring home a solid lead to France. Debora Carangelo and Sassari were scoring so much early that live stats were not working in Kortrijk as they won 96-51 to put themselves in good position when they play in Italy next week. Sam Van Buggenhout had a good game for Boom, but another Belgian team looks to be on the brink after their 102-62 loss to Julie Wojta, Gabija Meskonyte, and Gernika, which will host the next game in Spain.

Four more series started on Thursday. Jacqueline Luna-Castro had a good game for Dafni Agiou Dimitriou, but they could not come close to Hatay in a 99-58 loss in Greece. The first close game came in Slovakia as KeKe Calloway and Eleftheria Moschatou bring back a 72-71 lead to Greece after edging Iggy Allen and Banska Bystrica. Nobody knew quite what to expect when Chanion forfeited their Greek Cup game over the weekend, but they did host Bydgoszcz and head to Poland having lost 85-59. The day finished in the Azores with Dejza James and Grengewald Hueschtert holding a slight advantage for the next game in Luxembourg with a 52-49 win over Uniao Sportiva as they rode their starters hard.

Two series started on Friday afternoon in Israel to finish before sunset. Jennie Simms recorded a triple-double, and Courtney Hurt led Elitzur Holon in scoring to edge Anamaria Virjoghe and Esperides Kallitheas 78-73 to hold the advantage when they have to play on the road in Greece. Jaelyn’s good game for Csata was not enough as they will start trailing 70-62 when they host Ramat Hasharon in Hungary.
