National team competitions
Famila Schio coach Fabio Fossati has vowed the club will bounce back from their EuroLeague Women exit.
The Italians were beaten 84-70 at home to US Valenciennes on Friday, which sealed a 2-0 series win for the French club.
US Valenciennes have entered familiar territory by clinching their second win in as many games this week against Famila Schio to reach the elite eight in the EuroLeague Women.
Champions in 2002 and more recently in 2004, USVO always seem to be hitting their stride this time of year.
US Valenciennes were in imperious form on Tuesday as they thrashed Famila Schio 95-60 in EuroLeague Women eighth-final action.
Australian international Penny Taylor had 26 points for the Italian outfit but she and her team-mates were run out of the gym in the second half.
Much is on the line for a last place team in the EuroLeague Women and Penny Taylor of Famila Schio delivered for her squad on Thursday evening. She had a remarkable all-around performance with a season-high 31 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists in her team’s 81-79 victory over Lotos Gdynia to garner Player of the Week honours.
