Thanksgiving... with international ballers

bosgana etsineke
A week full of basketball games just passed with the girls not taking a break during Thanksgiving week. 
A huge battle in the Bahamas between two Top-20 ranked teams, #7 Stanford and #18 South Florida, turned out to be true Black Friday for Stanford, losing by three... It was also the battle of the Elenas; Tsineke and Bosgana going head-to-head for the first time in the US, with Elena Tsineke prevailing. After an amazing game and outstanding performance, Elena T. led South Florida University (5-2) to the win against Stanford (4-2) during a busy 35 minutes, with 7-20 FG, 3 ORB, 2 DRB, 2 assists, and 14 total points. On the other hand, Elena Bosgana had a short amount of playing time in the game, with 8 minutes and a missed 3PT.  Elena Bosgana had another game the following day against 2nd-ranked Maryland (6-2), during which she played 6 minutes, and got on the scorers' table with 2-3 FG, 1-2 FT, 1 assist, and 5 total points.  
The other half of the Tsineke twins, Katerina Tsineke and the University of Montana (5-1), had two games the past week, against Houston Baptist (3-3) and Nicholls State (2-5). In the first one, Katerina had 25 minutes, 3-5 FG, 1-3 FT, 2 ORB, 4 DRB, 2 assists, 2 steals, and 7 total points. In the second one she played 10 minutes, with 1-2 3PT, 1 ORB, 2 DRB, 1 steal, and 3 total points. We also had a Lamprini Polimeni sighting in the latter game against Nicholls State for Montana, in which Lamprini scored her maiden three-pointer and dished her first assist in D1! Here's to many more in months and years ahead Lamprini :) 
Ioana Krimilli and San Francisco (4-2) had a rough game against always tough Drake (3-2), during which Ioanna played 27 minutes and had 2-8 3PTs, 4 assists, 1 steal, and 6 points total.
Ioanna Chatzileonti at Kansas played 19 minutes, and she had 1 ORB, 2 DRB, 1 assist against UTEP (2-1). Another good performance for Ioanna took place against Tennessee (3-0) when she played 31 minutes with 6 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks, and led Kansas in the Jayhawks battle against the legendary Vols. 

Seval Gul from Saint Louis (1-5) played 10 minutes, adding 4 rebounds, 1 assist, and 3 points against the unbeaten and Top-25 FGCU (7-0).
Christina Katsamouri from Manhattan College (2-2) had a game against Stetson (2-2), during which she played 20 minutes, contributing 1 block, 1 steal and her usual solid defense.
