Harmon’s performance the best of Kiwis overseas last week


Jillian Harmon

Jillian Harmon produced the top performance last week by a New Zealand international overseas.

Harmon scored 16 points for Le Mura Lucca (for the second successive game) as they beat Ragusa 62-46 in the Italian League. The Tall Ferns forward secured 5 rebounds for good measure.

Micaela Cocks scored 11 points and added 4 rebounds for Townsville Fire as they went down to Sydney University Flames 69-68. It was a poor weekend for the Fire losing both road games and slipping to 2-2 in the Australian WNBL.

It was a better weekend for Toni Edmondson as she produced a very useful stat line of 8 points (4/6FG), 7 rebounds, 3 assists and a steal as Perth Lynx improved to 3-2 for the season

Bubbling under last week:

Dion Prewster 9 points (3/7 3PG) in just 12 minutes as Sydney Kings defeat Illawarra Hawks.

Mike Karena had 6 points and 7 rebounds as Sammic ISB were thumped 71-41 by Albacete the Spanish Second Division competition. Sammic were previously unbeaten entering game four of the season but suffered a rude awakening in this one.

Isaac Fotu 7 points and 3 rebounds as Zaragoza return to winning ways defeating UCAM Murcia in Spanish Liga Endesa.

Jess Bygate 6 points and 3 rebounds as Melbourne Boomers beat Bendigo Spirit 71-67 and move to the top of the WNBL ladder

In other News:

 Jarrod Kenny played just 3:44 as Perth Wildcats defeated United in Melbourne. The former Westlake standout left the court with a groin strain and could be out of action for 3-4 weeks. To compound Perth’s problems the Wildcats have also lost fellow point guard Damian Martin for a couple of weeks with a jaw fracture.
