I'm thinking Liz will just dominate this Chinese league for as long as she can, make great money and party in Australia for the rest of the year attending every social event she can.

She won't reach her potential although Liz at 75% of her best is still pretty good.

Interesting thought. I wouldn't expect it, given how little money she'd make here, but in terms of Opals prep it's a nice thought.


Penny had 31 pts last night btw, in a 14pt loss vs the league's top team.

Liz 22 & 14 in a 6 pt win to help her team to 7-1

I believe Penny has committed to a full Opals program in 2016. There is a break in January in the WNBL which is for the Opals to go over to Rio and play against 6 other countries. I am hoping she pops up and leads that squad, apparently it will be a squad of 20 and the Rio 12 will come from that.

Hey mate, already on to the update! I was just going to post the same. She only played 3 quarters as well due to their rules that if the other team doesn't have an import apparently the team with the import can only play quarters 1,2 and 3. The Penny train is rolling!

You found a schedule on the next round of games in English at all. I am coming up empty at the moment.

Yeah Penny seriously needs some help from her team mates, but answer me this, pretty sure Wei is on Shanxi and is taller than Lizzie, think she is 206cm, how on earth does Penny at 6'1" (185(ish)cm) outrebound the taller players on the team and she looks to be playing point guard at times.

I mean I know she does everything but really, at 206cm just jack the ball in there and get the job done. Ok she may miss a few.

Only 1 other player scored double figures for Shanxi and that was 14 points.

Penny posted 26pts, 7 boards and 4 assists in Shanxi's lose last night. Shanxi had a 2nd quarter like Rangers did in the 4th last weekend, just stopped to a hault and only bagged 10 to oppositions 20.

Penny playing a lone hand, as majority of imports are doing as well.

Liz 19pts, 12 boards in a win last night.

Don't quite know how the 2nd stage works, but it seems to go for quite a while. So not sure if Shanxi are in trouble with only 1 win in the 2nd stage, but Lizzie's team seems to be keeping up the winning goods.

The individual stats are often relevant to the depth of the team and competition. Unfortunately the comp in China is not a strong one, it just pays better than the wnbl does. Penny and liz will always have good stats , just wish they were playing in our league , imagine how good it would be to have our stronger players filling spots on aussie teams, it would certainly help the spirt here.

Totally agree with you, its unfortunate our league just can't get sponsorship or salary budget to get our home grown players back. Or on the flip side our players don't feel like dropping close on $400-$500K to play at a guess.

You can't blame them though, it is their job.

Shanghai came up short against Xinjiang (featuring Tina Charles) on Saturday night, but Liz had a massive night piling on 36 points @ 70% to go with 19 boards, 3 blocks, 4 steals & 3 assists.

Shanxi went down yet again. They had an 8 point lead at 3Q time when Penny had to sit out (as foreigners must do in that league if their opponent doesn't have a foreigner), but blew it in the 4th to lose by 2.
18 points, 7 boards, 3 assists & 2 blocks for Penny in her 3 quarters of action.

There's a bit of speculation around the twitterverse about Penny regarding various European leagues but I haven't seen anything solid yet.
Personally I'm glad she's not overloading herself. She's doing the opposite of LJ, she's looking after her body and as a result she is still performing at a pretty high level when she does play.

In the return game vs Beijing she played a lot better, this time piling on 30 & 17 in her matchup with Fowles, but her team still went down by 5.

Then on Thursday night she had 28 & 11 and 3 blocks in a 2 point win, but she also got suspended for 1 game for this hit on Yelena Leuchanka...

Incident looked bad.

Although Yelena was holding her arm. Potentially Liz's swing was a "get off my arm" as she could have been holding her all game. She went too hard and wacked her in the face.

I can see how Liz could get frustrated with how often she gets held.

Catching up with Liz's numbers now that the regular season has finished.
Since my past post she has got:
* 20 & 9, and
* 12 & 10 ... both in losses to Tina Charles' team
* 25 & 10 in a big win
* 31 & 12 also in a win, to finish the season

Her team (Shanghai) finished 3rd overall.

Playoffs begin Feb 2nd.

Some odd (lack of) rules in that league, as Candace Parker will join Guangdong for the playoffs, replacing Yelena Leuchanka as their import. Pretty handy ring-in!

Liz is held to 11 points (4/5 from the field. Sounds like some major double and triple-teaming happening there) ... but her team still gets the 68-66 win.

Wonder if this contributed to Liz's moodiness today...

The other night she had 12 points & 12 boards - a low-scoring night by her usual WCBA standards. Sylvia Fowles went off for 40 points that game as Beijing levelled the series.

Then last night it was just 8 & 6 for Liz, limited by foul trouble to 27 minutes. Fowles (31 & 15) and Beijing took a 2-1 lead in the series.
