UMMC go for Moore, CCC and BLMA reload, YDU deliver a Cup

MUNICH (EuroLeague Women) – Even if there has not been any EuroLeague Women action during the past couple of weeks, there have still been some pivotal moments for a number of clubs.

Moore makes EuroLeague Women return
UMMC have reacted to the loss of the legendary Diana Taurasi by turning to another USA standout in the shape of former EuroLeague Women champion, ex-WNBA MVP and double Olympic champion, Maya Moore.

The versatile star won the title during 2012 with Ros Casares and has since spent much of her career with the Minnesota Lynx and stepping out in China, where she won a number of titles under current Dynamo Kursk playcaller, Lucas Mondelo.

Moore will now get to go up against her former coach not only in the quest to deliver a EuroLeague Women title for Ekaterinburg, but also domestically in the Russian Premier League. However, the player will not be available for UMMC until the middle of the month.

Bojovic to lend a hand for CCC Polkowice
Veteran playmaker Miljana Bojovic has added depth to CCC Polkowice as they look to improve on their disappointing 2-7 EuroLeague Women record and realistically push for a EuroCup Women spot.

The guard previously played with Polkowice at the start of the 2015-16 campaign, having also played in Poland at Lotos Gdynia earlier in her career. Bojovic competed in EuroLeague Women last season with Tango Bourges Basket.

Little a big deal for BLMA
French side BLMA are also hoping for an upturn on fortunes during coming weeks as they hope to secure a EuroCup Women spot. Their task may be made a little easier with the arrival of added quality in the form of Camille Little.

The versatile forward is a veteran WNBA performer, although only has a solitary season in EuroLeague Women to her name – appearing for Agu Spor during 2013-14.

Yakin Dogu Universitesi pick up President's Cup

Yakin Dogu Universitesi are continuing their bid to firmly establish themselves as the top club in Istanbul and also in Turkish Basketball. Their latest piece of silverware came in the shape of the President's Cup.

MVP Kayla McBride was the inspiration as Yakin Dogu beat neighbours Fenerbahce 75-59 with the swingman firing 21 points.
