The eighth day of the Women’s Euroleague takes place on Wednesday and Thursday. Presentation of the meetings of two French clubs “Burges” and “Basket Landes”.
Tango Bourges Basket, with only 2 wins in 6 games during the last month of the year, showed some signs of fatigue, especially in the intensity of the commitment. Thus, Olivier Lafargue’s players missed the start of several games, such as against Polkowice (-10 after 10) and against Fenerbahce (-22 at halftime). Berruyère hopes to make a good start to 2023 despite the departure of Sweden’s Farhiya Abdi, but with the return of Alix Duchet and Andy Miem from December. To get back into the hunt for the top 4, the reigning French champions have a mission to win in Greece. Facing Olympiakos and American Megan Gustafson, who is the top scorer of the competition with an average of 24.6 points, Bourges will be able to answer with Yvonne Anderson, who is the 3rd in the same statistical ranking with 18.7 points per game. In order to win, captain Élodie Godin’s teammates must not miss an entry or risk losing their energy to win the score.

After a disastrous debut in both the EuroLeague and the Women’s League, Basket Landes suffered a gunshot wound to the leg. With 6 defeats after 7 matches in this first game, Basket Landes’ players have seriously jeopardized their chances of joining the Top 4 of Group B, even with a perfect return match. Anyway, without the pressure, Julie Barennes’ girls will sell their skins for the rest of the competition. This Wednesday, they travel to Girona, Catalonia, where they beat last season 78-70, including 17 points on 8/11 shooting and 11 rebounds in 25 minutes from Regan Magariti. What gives them reason to believe.
