Douglas Dazzles Again


Katie Douglas produced the goods again as Lietuvos Telekomas beat Wisla Can-Pack 80-67 in an exciting EuroLeague Women match on Thursday.

Douglas was outscored by Anna De Forge, who poured in 32 points for the beaten Poles, but she still produced a performance that meant the difference between victory and defeat with 20 points and eight rebounds as well as four assists.

Team-mate Sandra Valuzyte also registered 20 points and eight rebounds.

However, it was Douglas, a 26-year-old American who has averaged 19.8 in the EuroLeague Women, who took her side to 7-2 in Group C and second place behind French side US Valenciennes Olympic.

Also with double digit scores for the Lithuanians were Irena Baranauskaite with 14 and Jurgita Streimikyte with 13.

De Forge's huge effort saw her score almost half of her side's points with only Nataliya Trafimava providing decent support with 16 before she was fouled out.

The Krakow-based club slip to 2-7 with only K Cero I.C.P. Kosice of Slovakia, who have lost all nine matches played, beneath them in the group.
