The Connecticut Sun's Tina Charles was named the EuroLeague's Player of the Week for Week 9, just barely edging out Phoenix's DeWanna Bonner in the efficiency index rating. Charles' 25 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks came in a 74-66 loss to Beretta-Familia, the offseason home of New York's Janel McCarville. The Liberty center tallied 13 points, eight boards and four steals in the win.

In the wake of losing 2010 MVP Lauren Jackson for up to three months with an Achilles' injury, Spartak signed veteran Taj McWilliams-Franklin to give them some size and experience down the middle.

While Fenerbahce may have already announced the signing of Atlanta's Angel McCoughtry, they recently added a little extra firepower in announcing a deal for Connecticut's Anete Jekabsone-Zogota.

Here are just a few other notable performances from other WNBA players through Week 9 of EuroLeague action:

DeWanna Bonner (Phoenix Mercury/Rivas): 27 points and nine boards in win over Gospic
Candice Dupree (Phoenix Mercury/Kosice): 18 points and eight rebounds in loss to Pecs
Nicole Powell (New York Liberty/Wisla): 18 points and seven rebounds in overseas debut against TTT Riga
Lindsay Whalen (Minnesota Lynx/USK Prague): 20 points, five rebounds and five assists in win over Vici
Erika de Souza (Atlanta Dream/Halcon): 18 points and 11 rebounds in win over Galatasaray
Candace Parker (Los Angeles Sparks/Ekaterinburg): 23 points and four rebounds against MKB Euroleasing
