Okul enjoys some revenge, Abdi inks Wisla return

MUNICH (EuroLeague Women) - We take a look at how EuroLeague Women Week 9 played out on social media and catch up with some of those involved.

Fenerbahce gained revenge on Famila Schio for one of only two losses on their record this season as their impressive campaign continued. They sealed an 83-77 success against the Italians and that was a source of considerable satisfaction for Firat Okul.

"It was an important game because we lost against Schio in Italy," said the playcaller.

"I would like to thank to my players as they showed an aggressive style of basketball - that was the major reason for our win."

Wisla CANPACK are struggling at 1-8 after they went down 67-61 at Nadezhda, but with a potential EuroCup Women berth still to push for, their fans will be delighted that the club has re-enforced their roster.

They have brought back Swedish ace Farihya Abdi who played for Avenida earlier this season and was previously in Krakow during the 2014-15 campaign.

Another Swedish national team standout was busy knocking out the best display of the week, with Amanda Zahui dropping a big double-double for ZVVZ USK Prague in an 83-80 thriller with Galatasaray.

She left the arena in a happy mood and that was not surprising, since her team went 5-4 - thanks mainly to her 19 points and 13 rebounds.

Silvia Dominguez won the EuroLeague Women title with UMMC and also Avenida and she went with the latter back to her former home court in Ekaterinburg. She was still highly in demand from those who used to work with her and support her.

The Avenida captain almost upset the locals as the Salamanca side almost did the double over their opponents. However, they were denied by UMMC, who posted a late surge to ride their way to a 60-50 win.

Sopron Basket are enjoying their best season for many years after they moved to 6-3 with a commanding 70-53 victory against CCC Polkowice. 

"It was a great win for us and and we have worked hard in our practices," revealed playmaker Yvonne Turner.

"Our coach always pushes us to get better and better, so we made the most of the game. EuroLeague Women is the highest level tournament, so there are no easy games.

"That is why every victory has to be valued and this was a great team effort," she concluded.
