Chamique Holdsclaw helped make Ros Casares one of the most feared teams in Europe last year and now the forward's back to help the club again after signing a contract with the Valencia team for the remainder of the campaign.
A USA international, Holdsclaw averaged 18.8 points and 8.6 rebounds in 13 EuroLeague Women games for the Valencia outfit in 2004-05 and though the team was knocked out of Europe in the eighth-finals this year, there is still a major prize to play for - the Liga Femenina title in Spain.
Ros Casares forward Janeth Dos Santos Arcain has been sidelined with a leg injury.
The Brazilian international, if fully fit, will play for her country at the FIBA World Championship.
Ros Casares gave new meaning to the phrase 'ice cold' as they crashed to a 64-43 defeat at home to Dynamo Moscow.
The second success this week over the Valencia side means Dynamo, whose best finish in the EuroLeague Women was fourth in 2000, are headed to the quarter-finals.
Dynamo Moscow staged an impressive second-half fightback and beat Ros Casares 72-59 before 2300 spectators in the Russian capital on Tuesday to win the first leg of their eighth-finals tie.
Team USA guard Diana Taurasi had 15 points and Natalia Vodopiyanova weighed in with 13 for Dynamo, who trailed 39-31 at half-time and entered the final quarter trailing 46-45 before outscoring their visitors 27-13 over the final 10 minutes.
