Ros Casares keeps its almost pristine record in the Liga Feminina by beating Giron on the road 86-61. El Ros moves up to 15-1 on the year, while Girona falls to 6-10.
The box score is here.
It looks like Girona gave Ros Casares an initial challenge, leading 21-15 after the first ten minutes. However, Ros Casares would win each of the following three quarters, starting a 14-0 run in the second quarter. They were leading 43-32 after the first half and holding Girona to just nine points in the final ten minutes.
Erika de Souza had a monster game for Ros Casares. She played 33 minutes, shooting 6-for-14. She had 15 points, 17 rebounds and five assists. It didn't hurt that Ros Casares only played eight players. Becky Hammon had 27 points for Ros Casares. Hammon will play with Ros Casares until the end of the season.
Kiesha Brown led Girona with 17 points, but had six turnovers. Girona turned the ball over 19 times.
If there are any pictures, I'll post them when I have them.
