UMMC clinches Russian cup

Candace Parker’s team beat the team of Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi for the Russian cup. Parker put up 23 points for the winning team, and Bird and Taurasi each had 24 for the losing team. Pretty impressive on all counts. You gotta love the press release……it’s not written in typical U.S. journalist style, so it’s a little hard to decipher.

Remember Maura McHugh? She’s a color analyst for Arizona State now.

A freshman who never got to play due to her injury has left Oregon.

And tonight, unranked Purdue beat #4 Ohio State, 63-61. It’s the Buckeyes’ first Big Ten loss.
