Europe hasn't always had the reputation as being a place to develop your talent, so I'll be interested to see how Allen & Talbot go over there.

George & Jarry join Hurst in the EuroLeague and both should be able to contribute at that level. If Jarry can stay healthy then a good season could see her back in the WNBA next year I reckon.
