Basket Landes, for a dare in front of the European champion, was challenged by the leader of Bourges

This Wednesday is the sixth day of the Women’s Euroleague. Tango Bourges are set to host Polkovice from Basket Polkovice, top of Pool A, while European champions Sopro are expected to face Basket Landes in Mont-de-Mars.

Tango Bourges Basket host the Polish team from Polkowice, current leaders of Group A, before continuing a dangerous trip to Fenerbahce for the final day of the year. A match that will be interesting to win for Olivier Lafargue’s protégés. One of the main contenders for the title should be able to do more than visit Turkey. Polkowice is led by Stephanie Mavunga, a former WNBA first round draft pick whose qualities we know shined with BLMA in the 2019/20 season (20.6 rating). With still impressive stats averaging 18.4 points and 14.8 rebounds per game, the Zimbabwean native is a formidable weapon. Artemis Spanou, who replaced Yvonne Turner, and Erica Wheeler (in Sopron) are also among the players to watch in Poland’s squad. But with the return of Alix Duchene, Burgess has a tighter manpower that can offer her a win, provided she doesn’t allow herself to be dazzled by skill at long range, an area where Polkowitz excels (2nd to Valens). Berruyères, good end in training.

Basket Landes, remember February 2nd…

After a difficult start to the season, the Landais finally found their way to victory in Mechelen. With their second consecutive season in the EuroLeagueWomen and a fairly successful past experience, the Landais can dream of a big blow against the defending champion Sopron. Julie Barennes’ players will have nothing to lose against a twice-beaten Hungarian side, completely committed to their cause at the Espace François-Mitterand. First with 3 points in Girona, then another surprising 22 points at home against Salamanca. Although the American scorer averaged 16.5 points and 7.3 assists per game as the group’s leading scorer, Brittney Sykes’ contract termination may have had something to do with the Hungarian side’s loss. The selection is under scrutiny after repeated breaches of his obligations to the club. The return of Yvonne Turner should make up for that loss. On February 2, the Landis defeated the future champion (61-52). Let’s bet that Céline Dumerc’s teammates will make life difficult once again.

Group A:

  • Shexard – Bologna
  • Prague – Olympiakos
  • Bourges – Polkovice, at 20.00.
  • Valencia – Fenerbahce

Group B:

  • Mersin – Girona
  • Basketball Landes – Sopron at 19:30.
  • Schio – Mechelen
  • Salamanca – Miskolc

Don’t forget that the matches of our two French clubs are available with a subscription on the OTT Skweek platform.
