Cata-Chitiga: Trips To Bourges Always Excite


Tarbes' Ana Cata-Chitiga goes into this week's home game against VICI Aistes in the EuroLeague Women reflecting on her first visit this season back to former club Bourges.

The defending champions of France, Tarbes faced their rivals -the team Cata-Chitiga played for last in the 2008-09 campaign- over the weekend and lost a nail-biter, 59-55.

Cata-Chitiga said the atmosphere in the gym where she once wore the Bourges shirt was "insane."

"The public responded to this (challenge) and pushed the Tangos with such enthusiasm," she said on her website.

"Playing in such an atmosphere (even as visitors), it motivates!

"I am always happy to return to Bourges, my first professional club."

Cata-Chitiga is averaging 8.8 points per game in the EuroLeague Women.

By winning that game, Bourges remained the only undefeated team in France's top flight at 7-0 while Tarbes are now 5-1.
