Brief Euro/Asian Overseas Update (1/3/10)

Oops, I’m two days late with the overseas update…AGAIN! Sorry :-(. Once again, blame work and the holiday…

Anyway, Euroleague hasn’t started up again yet, but lets get updated on the people (uh, person…) who had some other games last week…

~ Shyra Ely ~ (Jiangsu Phoenix?)
Hmmm…so it looks like Jiangsu is now 5-5 after winning three games this week. Is this Ely’s team? I still dunno. I really should just stop guessing and just point you toward the only reliable info I have on Shyra…her twitter page. She didn’t say anything about playing three games this week so perhaps I’m completely off base with this Jiangsu thing. But, this tweet and this tweet indicate that, not only did Shyra win yesterday, but she had a MONSTER double-double of 35pts (on 12/14 shooting) and 10rbs. DAAAAAAAAAAAAMN!

No games last week. Next game is on 1/4/10 vs. Elizur Holon…

~ Courtney Paris ~ (Maccabi Ashdod)
No games last week. Next game is on 1/4/10 vs. Elizur Ramla…

Interesting note though — in this article about Courtney’s return visit to Oklahoma University last week, the article states…

She [Courtney Paris] leaves for Turkey today after signing a contract to play a few months with a team there until she can join the Sky next season.

So, either that is a typo and they meant Israel or Paris is switching teams. Definitely something to keep an eye on…

No games last week. Next game is on 1/4/10 vs. Electra Ramat…

~ Candice Dupree ~ (Good Angels Kosice)
No games last week. Next Slovakian league game is on 1/10/10 vs. Presov. Next Euroleague game is on 1/13/10 vs. ZVVZ USK Prague. Also, it appears as if Kosice did have a couple games last week (contrary to what I said in last week’s update…). In fact, they won the Slovak Cup…but Dupree didn’t play in those games…

Well, that was easy. Not too much going on this week (…only Ely KILLIN’ it in China), but it looks as if things will be back in full swing by next week.

Later, Sky fans!
