The foreign invasion at UMMC Ekaterinburg has continued at full tilt with USO Mondeville confirming that their French star Caroline Aubert had signed for the Russian giants for the remainder of the season.
Aubert, a EuroLeague Women All Star selection last season who won the three-point shooting contest in Valencia, will be available to play for Laurent Buffard's team with immediate effect in Europe when Ekaterinburg take part in the eighth-finals against ESB Lille Metropole.
USO Basket had no chance of reaching the eighth-finals of the EuroLeague Women but at least they exited the competition in impressive fashion by defeating Germano Zama Faenza 84-68 on Wednesday.
The French team improved to 3-7 but finished fifth in Group D, one place outside the play-off places, with TEO Vilnius (3-7) beating them to the vital fourth position on a tie-breaker.
MiZo Pécs 2010 won 77-72 at USO Mondeville Basket on Wednesday, with Anna Vajda and Zsofia Fegyverneky each pouring in 19 points in the win.
It was a balanced scoring attack for the Hungarians, who also got 17 points from Emilija Podrug and 10 from captain Dalma Ivanyi.
Ros Casares continued their irresistible march into the last 16 of the EuroLeague Women but were pushed hard by USO Mondeville Basket before claiming an 83-78 win.
DeLisha Milton was the driving force behind the win with 20 points and 15 rebounds, ensuring the hosts remain unbeaten at 7-0 atop Group D.
