Wings Overseas Roundup – Oct. 29

Arike Ogunbowale

Ogunbowale continues to dominate overseas as she set the 2019-20 Women’s Eurocup high by scoring 38 vs CCC Polkowice. She also leads Eurocup with 33 points per game and 66 total points by shooting 50 percent from beyond the arc. In Ormanspor’s TKBL game of the week, the Wisconsin Wonder dropped 24 points against Canik Sunday, making the team 5-0 (3-0 in regular season play).

Megan Gustafson

After dropping the team’s first game against currently undefeated Sopron Basket, Gustafson has led NKE-FCSM Csata to four straight wins, including posting a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds in her only game last week. She also set her professional career-high with three steals.

Karlie Samuelson

Samuelson continues to establish herself as a premier sharpshooter in Europe by sinking 11 threes in her two games last week, including eight in her Eurocup 106-45 route of Olivais Coimbra. Her 33 points on 12-of-14 shooting (8-of-10 from three) was not only a professional career high but also earned her Eurocup Player of the Week honors, and she set the record for most threes made in a game (eight) and a half (six) in the 2019-20 Eurocup season. She extended her streak of professional games with at least one three made to ten in an 82-63 win over Zamarat, providing 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting (3-of-5 from three).

 

Kayla Thornton

Thornton brought her Texas Two-Step to Korea on Sunday by recording her first double-double of the year overseas, grabbing 16 rebounds and 24 points in a 63-43 win over the Blueminx. She also came within 2 points of her professional career high in points and set her 2019 high with 33 points against OK Shoot on October 23rd in a 77-64 win. Behind Thornton’s strong performance, the KB Stars have started their championship defense 3-0 and Thornton is on the path to repeat as foreign player of the year.

Imani McGee-Stafford

McGee-Stafford suffered an ankle injury in the Lynx’s 97-79 loss to the Bendigo Spirit on 10/20/19. An MRI revealed ligament damage and she will be unable to play for the upcoming week.
