A double dose of Europe (12/12/09)

Well, I just got back from an awesome, once-in-a-lifetime experience sitting courtside at the Bulls/Warriors game, but that’s a blog post for a different day. Right now I just want to update you on how the Sky have been doing the past two weeks in Europe (…cuz I got lazy and skipped last week).

*FYI: For non-Euroleague games, I’ve gotten most of my stats from Eurobasket.com. Well, it looks as if some parts Eurobasket.com have suddenly turned into a pay site. Some info is no longer available for free. If I can find the info elsewhere, I’ll post them here as I always have. If not, I’ll just update you with the info that I can find, ok? ok!

Nice article from Fiba Europe about Kosice, including this about Dupree…

The summer signing of Candice Dupree has paid big dividends, with last season’s Rest of the World Team All-Star averaging 19.3 points and 10.3 rebounds.

She has so far logged more minutes than any other player in the league (38.8 minutes average).

In her last four games, the 25-year-old Dupree has played all 40 minutes.

Candice is logging HEAVY minutes in Euroleague play…


It appears as if starting next week, we’re not going to be able to call these posts “European updates…” because Shyra Ely is heading to China!

**GOOD LUCK, SHYRA!!!** A 100% Shyra Ely post is coming soon because she’s doing some cool stuff this offseason away from basketball…

And remember, Dominique Canty is headed to Israel in January…

Until next time, Sky fans 🙂
