Pair of UConn legends begin quest for EuroLeague title

With all due respect to what may transpire in the WNBA playoffs, there might not be a higher level of women's professional basketball than what will happen in the coming weeks during the race to crown the EuroLeague Women champion.

The four quarterfinal series begin on Tuesday, game two in the best of three series is a week from tomorrow and the if necessary game will be played on Mar. 11.

A pair of former Huskies are part of the pool of players pursuing championship glory.

Diana Taurasi's UMMC Ekaterinburg team will face fellow Russian team Nadezhda. Another of the series features an all-Turkey showdown as Tina Charles' Fenerbahce squad squares off with Galatasaray.

I haven't been updating the progress of UConn products playing overseas or in South America as much in the past so I decided to do a little catching up and here are the stats for the players still currently playing professionally.

Jim, any thoughts about Diana Taurasi's European team paying her NOT to play in the WNBA this year?
