Polish League Round 12 December 21st-22nd
A full round was played midweek before the holiday and Katarina Zec and Lublin piled more misery on Bydgoszcz 96-44 in one of four Thursday games. Zaglebie Sosnowiec won 69-57 against Polonia Warszawa. Pruszkow is no closer to a first win after losing to Nathalie Fontaine and Arka Gdynia 98-43. The combination of Sug Sutton and Maya Dodson lifted Poznan past Torun 78-69. Lindsay Allen had an incredible scoring day on Thursday to make sure that Gorzow stayed perfect with a 96-80 win over Stephanie Jones, Karolina Stefanczyk, and Sleza Wroclaw.

The cup game above meant that a full Thursday round could not be played as scheduled, leaving three games on the docket.
