Galatasaray have made another significant move to further boost their EuroLeague Women prospects after striking a two season deal with former FIBA Europe Young Player of The Year Ginatre Petronyte. The Lithuanian star will step out onto the floor in Istanbul for her ambitious new team as they desperately try to move out of the shadow of city rivals Fenerbahce who have made plenty of noise so far during the off-season.
As the dust settles on another terrific Euroleague Women season, it's time for many of those involved to reflect on what has been an inevitably gruelling but ultimately fascinating journey. For one player in particular, the 2009-10 ELW campaign has been the roller-coaster ride of a lifetime.
The EuroLeague Women Final Four was the main event in Valencia over the weekend so it was no surprise that many prominent figures were in the audience to soak up the atmosphere.
The Mayor of Valencia, Rita Barberá, sat at midcourt on Sunday beside Ros Casares president German Ros and watched as Spartak Moscow Region beat Ros Casares in a thrilling title game, 87-80.
