Dunking the basketball is not just the domain of men, as Donnette Snow reminded Italian basketball this week when she jammed one home in Lavezzini Parma's 75-65 win over CaraChieti.
Snow scored 22 points, but the biggest two came a couple of minutes before half-time when she soared 3.05m off the floor and dunked on a fastbreak.
Brno brushed aside an understrength Lavezzini Parma in the eighth-finals of the EuroLeague Women to advance to the quarter-finals for the 8th time in the last 9 seasons.
Parma were without Federica Ciampoli and Dubravka Dacic, while Gordana Grubin and Ana Kostaki's playing time was limited due to niggling injuries.
Italian side Lavezzini Parma faced a tough challenge Tuesday night in the EuroLeague Women play-offs. If attempting to win in Brno was not difficult enough, Parma were without key peformers Federica Ciampoli, Anastasia Kostaki and Dubravka Dačič.
As expected, the task proved too tough for Parma and Brno dominated on both ends of the court from the opening tip.
Lavezzini Basket Parma travel to Gambrinus Brno for Tuesday's last 16 FIBA EuroLeague Women clash without three key players.
Greek Olympic shooting guard Anastasia Kostaki and Italian centers Dubravka Dacic and Federica Ciampoli are all out through injuries.
