Loughborough Riders’ Sasha Lecuyer bagged more points in her second game this season for the team in the Women’s National Basketball League (WNBL) Division1 championship. The Times of Malta Sporsdesk looks at Lecuyer and other Maltese professionals plying their trade overseas in another segment of ‘Maltese Abroad’.
Sasha Lecuyer (picture), who came in from the bench for WNBL side Loughborough Riders against the Worchester Wolves, scored four points, grabbed two rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes last Saturday.
This, however, was not enough as the team lost 67-82 in a game which saw the visitors take over from three-point range.
Loughborough now face Thames Valley Cavaliers this weekend in the next fixture as they try to get another win as they now stand in eight-place with one win and two losses.
Kurt Cassar was not able to add to his tally in Pallacanestro Orzinuovi’s first match of the season against Piacenza. The side did well to take a good lead during the second and third quarters but lost it at the death for a final score of 92-94.
Orzinuovi have had their first two matches, against Biella and Verona, postponed due to covid-19 and now face Tortona on December 6.
Mikela Riolo’s CD Magectias also fell to a close defeat against Maristas Coruna on Sunday.
Riolo was unable to get herself on the board as the side lost 80-76 despite the Lanzarote side having won most of their quarters.
Magec Tias host Celta Zorka Recalvi in their next game on Saturday.
