Libs Abroad Weekly Roundup Presented by Withings: 3/10

The Libs Abroad Weekly Roundup is back with another week of impressive performances to recap from around the world:

Han Xu led Sichuan Yuanda to their second consecutive WCBA Finals appearance and is competing in her third championship in as many years. To clinch the Semifinals sweep, Han provided a 19-point and 12-rebound double-double in a 98-66 victory.

Despite Sichuan dropping Game 1 of the Finals to Neimenggu, she finished with season bests of 24 points and 66.7% (4-6) shooting from three. Earlier today, Han helped even the best-of-three series with a 71-63 win behind 11 points and season-highs of 16 rebounds, four blocks, and three steals.

In her two KBSL appearances this week, Breanna Stewart led Fenerbahçe to a pair of wins, extending their record to 18-3 in the Turkish season.
