Weekend Overseas Update

Again, a light weekend of Storm action with the major teams busy with the Euroleague postseason, so just three games involving Storm players.

Another day, another Greek A1 League win for Athinaikos. This weekend, Athinaikos improved to 17-0 by blowing by Panionios 89-63. Katie Gearlds paced Athinaikos with 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting and seven rebounds in 30 minutes of work before calling it a night. Panionios got 16 points and nine assists from Seattle native Lindsey Wilson, while one-time Storm center Tye'sha Fluker had 14 points and 11 rebounds.

Kelly Santos was hampered by foul trouble in a 59-50 Cadi La Seu loss to Celta Indepo on Friday. Santos picked up five fouls in just under 24 minutes of action. She scored 10 points on 5-of-9 shooting when she was on the floor.

In Ireland, Kristen O'Neill's 23 points led UL Aughnish to a 62-39 win over DART Killester. The Aughnish outscored Killester 31-11 after halftime to improve to 9-2, tied for second in the Irish Superleague.
