Weekend Overseas Update

A light weekend for games involving Storm teams, with two games on the schedule. The biggest came in Greece, where Athinaikos got another test against Paleo Faliro, a middle-tier team in the Greek A1 league. Athinaikos trailed by nine after one quarter and five at the half before holding on for a 59-58 win. Athinaikos would have been doomed without a strong effort from Katie Gearlds, who scored 22 points on 9-of-16 shooting and pulled down six boards. Athinaikos remains undefeated in league play at 16-0.

Despite an off night for Kelly Santos (six points on 3-of-12 shooting, five rebounds), Cadi La Seu got back on the winning track by defeating Gran Canaria 70-68. At 5-11, Cadi La Seu is tied with Mann Filter Zaragoza for 10th in the Spanish Liga Feminina.

What is the story with UConn's Mel Thomas going to Seattle Training Camp. It is on her local newspaper.
