Jillian and Amber excel in Italy

For the third time this season, Jillian was named the Italian Serie A1 League Player of the Week:
The 29-year old guard had the game-high 23 points adding six rebounds for Lucca in her team's victory, helping them to crush La Spezia (#12, 2-16) with a 19-point margin 71-52. It allowed Lucca to consolidate first place in the Italian Serie A1. Lucca has a solid 16-2 record. In the team's last game Harmon had a remarkable 66.7% from 2-point range. It's her second year at Lucca and it's hard to imagine this team without her.

Jillian is the fourth-best scorer in the league with an average of 17.6 ppg. Her 2.6 steals per game is eighth-best in the league.

Amber's performance for Vigarano — 18 points, four rebounds and four assists — was judged the fifth-best of the week.

Amber ranks ninth in the Italian league in scoring (15.1 ppg), fourth in assists (3.1 apg) and fourth in steals (3.4 spg).
