PLKK 8/2009 - Krakow 78, Siemens 67

Iziane Castro Marques on the way to another win. Leona Jankowska tries to block.

It's been a great day for Atlanta Dream players so far. Both Erika de Souza's and Sancho Lyttle's teams win, and now Iziane Castro Marques has been undefeated while playing on her new club, Wisla Can-Pack Krakow (5-3). Krakow hit the road and came back from behind from a horrible first quarter, winning 78-67 against Siemens (3-6) on the road.

The box score is here. Nothing with regard to pictures or a write-up just yet.

Krakow got off to a poor start. They were down 18-8 after the first 10 minutes...but Krakow soon woke up. Krakow took a 35-32 lead into the halftime break and never lost a quarter after that.

A quick look at the Four Factors of the game:

Field goal percentage: Krakow 50 percent, Siemens 45 percent. Both teams were very good from 3-point range: Krakow was 10-for-20 and Siemens was 10-for-22.
Turnovers: Krakow 11, Siemens 14. Another edge for Krakow.
Offensive rebound percentage: Krakow 35 percent, Siemens 24 percent. This might have been where Krakow won the game, or....
Free throws: Krakow 12-for-20, Siemens 3-for-3. Siemens didn't get any trips to the free throw line. Janell Burse had four personal fouls but no other Krakow player had more than two.
