Israeli League Round 15 February 16th

All games except one in this round were scheduled for the Thursday after the international break. The first game was Jordan Hooper and Hapoel Rishon Lezion’s 82-54 win over Alisia Jenkins and Ramat Hasharon. Taylor Wurtz and Danielle Adams continued to lead ASA Jerusalem, but Maccabi Ashdod proved to be too much of a test and Shatori Walker-Kimbourgh and Tal Sahar paced the hosts in a 96-79 win. Elitzur Ramla was missing players as they have important games coming up, but Shakira Austin and Elina Babkina made up the difference in their 85-78 win even though Jennie Simms, Alex Harden, and Courtney Hurt were all strong for Elitzur Holon. The two struggling teams played and Kelsey Bone had the most spectacular performance of the day to lead Hapoel Petah Tikva to a 79-72 win over Breanna Richardson to avoid falling a game behind everyone else.

Spanish League Round 21 February 16th

The game that has the most direct relegation implications was not played, but all of the other teams were in action on the Thursday after the international break. Jolene Anderson and Barcelona edged Mariam Coulibaly and Ibaeta in the first game in Gipuzkoa. Sika Kone and Petra Holesinska had good games for Gran Canaria, but Araski prevailed at the end 76-75. Estudiantes pulled away from Bembibre for a 66-49 win. In Lugo, Ensino took advantage of Tenerife’s struggles to move to a much safer position after a 69-60 win, getting a triple-double from Alba Prieto. Shorthanded Avenida was not particularly convincing in a 63-47 win over Sedis. The game to determine which team would sit at the top of the standings closed the day and Valencia imposed their will early to win 77-62 over Girona.
