Overseas League Updates April 7th

Turkish League Playoffs

After a tough loss in their continental final, Galatasaray was hoping to at least complete a domestic sweep, but instead will be forced into crowding their schedule further with a deciding game Sunday after a 78-69 loss to Jessica Thomas and Nesibe Aydin even with a good game from Teaira McCowan. Friday’s other game marked the start of the semifinals and Cukurova wants to take care of business before their continental adventure and they won the opener 93-65 over Botas.

Italian League Quarterfinals April 4th-7th

One series had to start earlier so that Schio could compete in continental competition and they opened with an 85-55 win over Campobasso on Tuesday. It was the Iliana Rupert show on Thursday as Bologna pulled away from Crema in the second half for a 95-70 win. Jessica Shepard led Venezia to a 69-52 win over Ragusa in Friday’s first game. The last series opened in wild fashion as it took two overtimes for Tinara Moore and Sesto San Giovanni to bring home a 90-85 win over Debora Carangelo, Anna Makurat, and Sassari. The other game was the second game of that series and Schio was hoping for a sweep to have a full week of rest before their big continental games, but Robyn Parks made sure that Campobasso would play again on Monday with a 67-66 win over Marina Mabrey and company.
