Wings Overseas Roundup – Oct. 22

Arike Ogunbowale
Ogunbowale and OGM Ormanspor have dominated in their first three games of the season, beating A3 Basket 109-65 to go 1-0 in Eurocup play and Cukurova 94-72 to move to 2-0 in league play. In both of her games this week, the Milwaukee Maven scored 28 points and is now averaging 27.3 points per game overseas.

Imani McGee-Stafford
McGee-Stafford continued her strong play overseas despite her Perth Lynx coming up short in their two games last week, 97-93 to Southside in OT and 91-79 against Bendigo Spirit. She has netted at least five baskets in all three games overseas and was just one rebound short of a double-double in both contests last week.

Megan Gustafson
Gustafson has established herself as a force overseas in her first four games, averaging 19.8 points per game and 9.5 rebounds. The Iowa icon has led NKE-FCSM to a 3-1 start and is averaging more than 30 minutes per game, sinking at least five buckets in every game. Her feats earned her a spot on Hungary’s A Division Players of the Week.

Karlie Samuelson
Avenidas remains undefeated and are now 6-0 on the season (5-0 in divisional play, 1-0 in Eurocup) and Samuelson has continued her onslaught from beyond the arc. The Stanford Sniper has now hit a three in eight straight professional games, including 12 in her six games overseas.

 

Kayla Thornton
Debuting in Korea, Thornton dropped 17 points to help lead the KB Stars to a 68-53 victory on her birthday. Thornton returns as the only foreign player on the 2018-19 WKBL Championship roster and was named both the Import Player of the Year and Player of the Year for the league and was named to the 1st team.
