Week 9 Top Performers: Jones, Williams, Gruda, Fauthoux, Ogunbowale
MUNICH (Germany) - Fenerbahce Safiport are rising up again in EuroLeague Women after some early bumps in the road and it was Elizabeth Williams who helped them shine against Basket Landes on Gameday 9.
The center is always influential at both ends of the court and she put in a typically powerful display as her team celebrated a 93-76 win in Mont-De-Marsan. Williams came up with a double-double of 23 points and 11 rebounds, shooting a clinical 73 percent from the field.
In the same game, one major bright spot for Basket Landes was the display of young playmaker Marine Fauthoux. She produced her best performance in the competition to date with an impressive 19 points and 9 assists to register an efficiency rating of 27.
Brionna Jones entered the EuroLeague Women MVP ladder earlier this week and that choice was further endorsed after another standout showing for ZVVZ USK Praha. The center went to work against MBA Moscow and led the Czech giants to a commanding 92-61 victory as she amassed 25 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists.
Beretta Famila Schio may have went down 65-55 at Spar Girona, but Sandrine Gruda could barely have done more to try and inspire a win. The French star produced one of her best outings of a super individual campaign with 20 points and 14 rebounds.
Dynamo Kursk picked up an important 80-70 win on the road at Galatsaray and it was Arike Ogunbowale who was one of the main architects. The guard brought the noise with 22 points.8 rebounds and 6 assists.
