Kristen Not Sharp Enough


Gran Canaria pipped Pays Aix Basket to a 66-63 win in EuroCup Women with Kristen Sharp missing what would have been a game-tying three-pointer on the buzzer.

Magali Lacroix's jump shot had given Pays a 61- 60 lead before Taru Tuukkanen's jump shot gave the Canary Islanders the lead in the Group H clash. Romeeka Rayshell Hodges drained a three-pointer and although Nathalie Ledesma reduced arrears with a jump shot, Hodges then split two free throws to seal the win.

Rebekkah Brunson had another huge game for Cras Basket Taranto with 32 points and 22 rebounds in an 86-61 win over Rhonda Rebels in Group J.

In Group G Kara Trutnov dispatched Seat Foton Gyor 76-59, a victory built largely on the second quarter. Seat took the first period 19-17 but were demolished in the second by Kara who took the second-period by a 20-point margin. From then on there was no way back for Seat for whom Rita Varga had 17 points and six boards. Darina Misurova was top scorer with 19 for the victor while there were 16 points apiece for Katerina Zohnova and Yulia Karavaeva.

Katrina Hibbert's 25 points were in vain for TSV Wasserburg who went down 91-77 to Kssse AZS-PWSZ Gorzow for whom Carrie Anna Moore poured in 22 points in Group F.

Belgium's Novia Munalux Namur were on the receiving end of a 76-39 spanking from Tarbes.
