EuroCup Women: Week 2 social media spotlight and reaction

MUNICH (EuroCup Women 2017) - We catch up with the protagonists of Week 2 of the EuroCup Women 2017 Regular Season as well as reviewing how it went down on social media.

There was history made again this week, but before we turn to that, there were mixed emotions for a Hungarian rising star and one of the best young prospects in Europe. Dorka Juhasz had the agony of her PEAC-Pecs team being edged out by the visiting Bellona Agu 69-62, but she did get to go up against a legend and there was a nice little twist to that.

"My mother also played against Ann Wauters, so this was a very special moment for me to also now play against her," enthused Juhasz.

"It was a close game, but in the end, they had more experience and that decided the match."

Also in Hungary, MBA Moscow are loving life in their first EuroCup Women season as they moved to 2-0 by beating PINKK Pesci 424 71-65.

Although we're not sure if it merits an open-top bus parade - as impressive as it was.

On to that history of course and congratulations were due to Olympiacos who won their first ever game in the competition with a nerve-shredding 61-60 success at Aluinvent Miskolc, while Cavigal Nice Basket 06 did it in style by storming past Elfic Fribourg 80-55.

There was a first ever Regular Season success for newcomers Rutronik Stars Keltern who won 76-50 on the beautiful Azores island of Ponta Delgada, with forward Maja Vucurovic keeping us all amazed with some perfect EuroCup Women postcards!

There was plenty of action on Italian soil as Virtus Eirene Ragusa won their second game in the competition to go 2-0, with some unconventional looking defence proving important against Nantes Reze.

Ashley Walker produced one of the best individual displays of the week with 29 points and 13 rebounds for Reyer Venezia against fellow Group G contenders, Basket Landes.

Finally, VBW CEKK Cegled could make a strong case for being the team of the season so far, since the Hungarian rookies came into the competition as relative unknowns.

But, they have made a brilliant start and their latest effort was a 62-50 success against former four-time EuroLeague Women champions, Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje.

"I would like to say many thanks to the many supporters that came out to watch our game," declared Dora Medgyessy who dished up eight assists and is having a brilliant campaign.

"It was a great feeling to play for them and they helped us to win. I am not saying that I am fully satisfied, but I am really proud of my team. I hope that we will keep going and find this way of winning," she concluded.
