Turkish League Round 5 November 5th-7th

Most of the games in this round were on Saturday, starting with Feyonda Fitzgerald and Antalya keeping Taya Reimer and Besiktas winless 73-52. Down a foreign player, Lyndra Weaver and Kayseri put up a credible effort against Cukurova, but lost 83-65. Botas won 65-60 while Riquna Williams helped Orman hand Nesibe Aydin their first loss 69-62. Kayla McBride and Serife Onar helped fire Fenerbahce past Emma Cannon and Botas 98-62 on Sunday. Tweaking the lineup made things a little bit closer than expected for undefeated Galatasaray against Sumeyya Ozcan and winless Rize, but they still prevailed 75-70. A fantastic game by Tyasha Harris was not enough for Cankaya University on Monday as Alexis Prince and Hatay won 76-71.

Israeli League Round 4 November 7th

This round was played fully on the traditional Monday, starting with Kaila Charles and Hapoel Rishon Lezion playing down an import, but still rallying late to nearly surprise undefeated Maccabi Ashdod, which edged proceedings 79-78 behind Shatori Walker-Kimbrough and Kalani Brown. Brittany Brown has already put up some pretty impressive statlines and got the elusive triple-double with Jillian Alleyne scoring plenty for Maccabi Ramat Gan in their 90-77 win over Hapoel Petah Tikva. ASA Jerusalem is just relying on Taylor Wurtz and Danielle Adams right now while Elitzur Holon is having to shuffle lineups by competition and it was Courtney Hurt who paced the visitors in an 86-66 win. Ramat Hasharon finally picked up their first league win 78-58 over a Herzliya team that at least got Briana Day in the lineup and looking strong. Amy Okonkwo and Tal Lev led a Maccabi Haifa team that was impressive in handing Shakira Austin and Elitzur Ramla their first loss 97-75.
