EuroLeague Women Final Four Preview

FIBA 2015 EuroLeague Women Final Four takes place tomorrow (Friday, April 10) in Prague.

The first game, between Russian teams Dynamo Kursk (Nneka's team) and UMMC Ekaterinburg is at 3:00 in the afternoon – 8:00 am Pacific Time.

The key matchup is between LA Sparks teammates Nneka and Candace Parker. Nneka leads Dynamo Kursk in scoring (19.8 ppg, #1 in league), rebounding (10.8 rpg, #1 in league) and steals (2.1 apg, #7 in league). Candace leads UMMC in rebounding (10.5 rpg, #2 in league), steals (1.4 spg) and blocks (1.1 bpg, #5 in league).

A key factor may be the absence of UMMC's Diana Taurasi, who broke a bone in her left hand a week ago. Diana led the league in 3-point shooting (2.6 per game) and was the second-best scorer (16.9 ppg).

You can watch the game live on http://www.livebasketball.tv or probably later on YouTube. (The EuroLeague Women quarterfinal games were archived; I assume that the Final Four will be too.)
