The player having the most fun in the EuroLeague Women this season has to be Géraldine Robert from Lotus Gdynia. She was everywhere as her team Lotus Gdynia beat VICI Aistes (97-80).
In the three other matches, only Beretta-Famila were able to win at home. Sparta&K Moscow Region went on a three-point shooting festival during the final quarter to win their game while ZVVZ USK Prague were saved by a Portuguese and WNBA legend.
However after six rounds of games Tarbes from France are without a single victory. They need to start winning soon if they want to stay in the competition. In the other groups the battle of fifth place is still wide open.
