Three Lynx Players Compete for European Supremacy
It's a huge weekend for three Lynx players as their respective teams battle for European supremacy.
Seimone Augustus and Istanbul-based Galatasaray face off against Italian side Cras Basket Taranto on Thursday in Game 1 of the EuroCup Championship Series. Meanwhile, Kelly Miller, Noelle Quinn and Spartak Moscow battle for the EuroLeague crown this weekend in Salamanca, Spain.
Augustus and Galatasaray advanced to the EuroCup Championship Series via a total-point series win over Russian club Dynamo Kursk two weeks ago. Needing to overcome a 14-point deficit courtesy of a 61-47 loss in Game One of the two-game, total-point series, Augustus willed her club to victory by nearly outscoring the Russian Club herself in Game Two, scoring 38 points to the 39 for Kursk.
