Libs Abroad Weekly Roundup: 11/6

The “Libs Abroad Weekly Roundup,” a weekly content feature, will recap the entire week of Liberty players competing internationally throughout the 2021-22 overseas season. See below for Week Four’s roundup:

Anyone Order a 37-Piece?

Jaz Jones shined in her third and fourth games with Antalya 07. Last Saturday, Jaz tallied an impressive 18-point, six-rebound outing in a 75-65 win over Botas. However, her 18-point afternoon would ultimately be less than half of her recent scoring output. On Friday, Jones finished with a Libs Abroad-best 37 points on 14-of-23 (60.8%) from the field and six rebounds against Çankaya Üniversitesi in a narrow 72-70 loss.

After a mid-season break, Jaz and Antalya 07 will look ahead to their next matchup in two weeks against Galatasaray on November 20.

Gray Posts a Season-High Double-Double on Halloween

Reshanda Gray continued her dominant start with Magnolia Campobasso, posting a season-best double-double of 26 points and 11 rebounds against Lucca on October 31.

Gray has now recorded a double-double in three of her first four overseas contests. Reshanda and Campobasso (4-1) will look to return to the win column when they match up against Broni tomorrow.

Bec Goes for a Season-High Against No. 1 Avenida

Bec Allen and Valencia continued their success through week four, extending their undefeated start to eleven consecutive victories across Liga Femenina Endesa and EuroCup play; which ultimately ended yesterday against No.1 ranked Avenida in a 67-75 loss.

Allen’s week was highlighted by a season-high 23 points on nine-of-fourteen (64.2%) from the field and five rebounds against Avenida.

On Tuesday, Bec had another textbook shooting performance finishing on four-of-seven (57.1%) from the field, two-of-three (66.7%) from three, and a perfect four-of-four at the free throw line for a total of 14 points in a 67-42 EuroCup win over Kangoeroes.

Valencia will return to play on November 18 against Leganes, followed by Zaragoza on November 21.

Tash Named Libs Abroad October Player of the Month

JoJo Extends Lyon’s Win Streak to Six Games

After starting their 2021 slate 0-3, Marine Johannès and LDLC ASVEL Féminin were able extend their win streak to six games across Ligue Féminine de Basketball and EuroLeague action.
