Looks like I put the wrong Spartak Moscow team on the schedule. Michelle Snow's Dynamo Kursk team didn't play the Spartak Moscow team that has Janel McCarville is a Euroleague semifinalist. Dynamo Kursk is playing the other Spartak Moscow team - the one that doesn't have a lot of WNBA stars on it. Dynamo Kursk beat The Other Spartak Moscow 63-39.
The box score is here.
In front of an audience of 1200 in Kursk it looked like a normal game with the hometown team beating The Other Spartak Moscow 37-26 by halftime. However, The Other Spartak Moscow would only score thirteen points in the second half - six in the third quarter, and seventh in the fourth.
For the losers, Catherine Chistyakov scored 14 points and nine rebounds for Spartak Moscow-SHVSM. Victoria Medvedev scored 12 points for Spartak Moscow-SHVSM, scoring 2-for-5 from the 3-point line.
Jillian Robbins shot 9-for-13 from the field and scored 19 points and eight rebounds. Michelle Snow also had a good game:
