BRA - Iziane leads Ourinhos to big wins in Brazil




Brazil international Iziane, who is back in South America after spending a couple of months with EuroLeague Women champions Spartak Moscow Region, led her team with 26 points against Fluminense and the following day poured in 29.

Iziane is back, but numerous other leading players are playing abroad and it means that even Ourinhos coach Paulo Bassul is finding it difficult to celebrate his team’s success this season.

The absence of players, he says, is affecting the competition in Brazil.

"We have 150 athletes playing abroad," he said.

“With that number we could have another 10 teams playing here. The exodus of players deteriorates the technical level of competition here."

Fluminense were definitely not celebrating. In addition to be mauled, they lost promising center Clarissa to an ankle injury which could rule her out for a month.

In other games, Sport/Faculdade Maurício de Nassau beat Florianópolis 76-56, second-placed Catanduva won 85-62 at Botafogo and A.D. Santo André edged São Bernardo, 63-60.
