Huge game for former Connecticut Sun draft pick

I didn't see the game but former Connecticut Sun draft pick Alba Torrens put on quite a show in leading Spain to a 77-72 win over Russia on the first day of the EuroBasket Championships.

Torrens scored 30 points (shooting 10 of 20 from the field), drained four 3-pointers and had three rebounds and two blocked shots. While enticing European stars to come overseas can be a complicated proposition, with the Sun struggling to find consistent offensive production outside of Tina Charles and Kara Lawson, one would hope that every effort is being made to try to get Torrens and Sandrine Gruda to come to the U.S. after the European Championships.

Gruda had nine points, six rebounds and three steals to lead France to a 62-39 win over Latvia.
