Spain: Holdsclaw Back At Casares

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.

Janeth Hit By Injury

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.
