The Webster brothers led the scoring for their respective club teams in Europe at the weekend but there was a contrast in the outcomes of their games.

Older brother Corey made 18 points – including four from seven threes – but Ironi Nahariya were defeated 72-69 by Bnei Hertzeliya. Nahariya have slipped to eighth in the Israeli League with a 6-9 record.

Tai Webster scored a game high 21 points (6/13FG, 8/8FT) and also posted 3 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals for German side Frankfurt Skyliners. The Skyliners struggled against bottom club Walter Tigers before eventually winning 65-57 to improve to 11-8 and eighth spot on the Bundesliga table.

One place above the Skyliners are Ratiopharm Ulm (11-7) after an 87-72 victory over Jena. Isaac Fotu produced 11 points (5/9FG), 6 rebounds and 4 assists as Ulm secured a second straight win.

In Italy Jillian Harmon came up with a big double-double of 28 points (12/25FG) and 14 rebounds to lead Napoli to a 71-67 win against Broni. The victory pushes Napoli up to fourth on the Italian League ladder with a 9-7 record.
