Is #7 who I think it is?
In the Fenerium tournament in Istanbul, Turkey, Turkish team Fenerbahce defeated Dobrí anjeli Košice 61-47 in a "friendly" match.
There is no detailed information at either Fenerbahce's web page, Dobrí anjeli Košice's web page or either web page of the national organizations of either country. Eurobasket has the only information. Finding information about Chamique Holdsclaw's new team is becoming frustrating.
I don't want to steal Eurobasket's content, but I want to make sure that I can find it again if I need it. The complete account:
Fenerbahce held off Dobri Anjeli Kosice in the opening game of the Fenerium tournament in Istanbul. The competition also involve Spartak Moscow Region and Electra Ramat Hasharon. The hosts got to a confident start. They grabbed the lead and maintained it well throughout the opening stanza. The scoreboard read 16:12 at the end of the first frame. Tuncluer helped the hosts to a 29:16 lead in the second period. However Chamique Holdsclaw (188-F-77, agency: Merit Sports, college: Tennessee) and Erin Marie Lawless (188-F-85, agency: LBM Management, college: Purdue) trimmed the distance as Dobri Anjeli trailed by just 3 points at the interval. Nevin Nevlin (195-C-85, college: Stanford) stretched the gap back to 8 points in the third stanza. Dobri Anjeli stayed close and entered the fourth term down by only 3 points 40:43. Nevriye Yilmaz (195-C-80) and Yardarli stepped up for the Turkish team midway through the fourth quarter. The hosts stretched the margin at 7 points 54:47. Fenerbahce closed the game on a 7:0 run to seal the winning outcome at the end. Nevriye Yilmaz knocked down 16 points to pace Fenerbahce. Nevin Nevlin added 13 points and 8 rebounds, while Birsel Vardarli (175-G-84) had 8 points in the victory.
No work as to how many points, rebounds, or anything that Holdsclaw had in the game. However, we do have some pictures at the link.
In the other match, Spartak Moscow defeated Electra Ramat Hasharon 89-61. The next match for Dobrí anjeli Košice will be against Electra Ramat Hasharon.
