EuroCup Women round-up week 2

In the second games of EuroCup Women Tarbes and Challes-les-Eaux from the LFB continued their winning streak.

They beat Spanish club side Extrugasa (83-52) and Dynamo Kurska (73-68) respectively.

Six players from Tarbes were in double digits with Béatrice Castets leading the way with 16 points, including 4-from-5 three-pointers.

On the opposing side Tarbes welcomed back Jaklin Zlatanova, Bulgarian youth international, who was a product of their youth academy. She scored for the loosing team 11 points.

For Challes Martina Luptakova-Gyurcsi was the top player with 24 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals.

But Kirby Copeland led the scoring with 27 points. Yet she missed the player of the match award because of her 8 turnovers.

However the third French club Mondeville that travelled to Turkey lost (53-72) Galatasaray.

So far nothing has gone right for the club, neither in domestic nor in European matches. Without Ingrid Tanqueray and Nora El Gargati they did their best with a reduced roster under their new head coach Hervey Coudray.

Mondeville trailed (28-33) going into the interval. After suffering a 10-0 run and also and 11-0 run in the third period they were not able to come back.
