Candice nears league championship in Spain

Candice joined Ros Casares-Valencia of the Liga Feminina (Spanish women's basketball league) in January after recovering from knee surgery. She has averaged 19 minutes and 8.6 points per game as Ros Casares led the league with a 25-1 record. Now Ros Carares is within one victory of its third straight league championship. In best-of-three series, they won the semifinals in two games and today defeated Perfumeria Avenida 96-56 in the first game of the finals. Candice averaged 11.7 points in those three playoff games. The second game is on Friday in Salamanca and the third game, if required, on Sunday in Valencia. Candice is scheduled to rejoin the Minnesota Lynx after her season in Spain is complete. The Lynx's first (and only) exhibition game is May 23.
