Krakow, the off-season team of Iziane Castro Marques, will be expecting more from her when she arrives in November 6th - Krakow will be taking place in the prestigious Euroleague competition, the same competition between some of the best teams in Europe, like Ros Casares and Perfumerias....
...and CSKA. Here's what happened. CSKA - the big team of players like Janel McCarville and Becky Hammon - folded in the off-season. They withdrew from the Russian Superleague A and their Euroleague obligations.
This left Euroleague one team short. Krakow was taking part in the less prestigious (but still prestigious) Eurocup. Wisla Can-Pack Krakow asked to play in Euroleague, and they were accepted.
It's a pity that Iziane won't show up until November. Krakow opens the Euroleague season against Perfumerias, which is Sancho Lyttle's team. However, the teams plays home and away, so we'll have to wait later for that match-up of Dream players.
