Wisła Women Still on the Charge
Wisła Can-Pack has taken over the top spot in the Polish Women’s Basketball League, edging out Gorzów Wielkopolski by one point after another victory against PTS Lider Pruszków on Saturday, 27 November. The ladies of the White Star Army have had an extraordinary year so far, brushing aside their European opposition, where they had only one defeat in the Euroleague Women tournament, and in the Polish league, where their only loss came at the hands of Gorzów Wielkopolski.
Second place Gorzów overcame Wisła with a one-point overtime in the Ford Germanz Ekstraklasa on 14 November, when a pitched battle went to overtime thanks to a final second three-pointer by Jelenia Leuczanka. Wisła point guard Erin Philips was able to twice give the Krakow squad the lead, but a foul at the buzzer gave Justyna Żurowska the opportunity to complete the three-point play, and close the contest with Gorzów one point to the good.
