Wings Overseas Roundup - January 14
Ogunbowale continues to be a scoring machine overseas by netting 19 points in an 86-67 win at Botas last weekend. Notre Dame's all-time leading scorer has averaged 25.1 points per game this year for OGM Ormanspor and is on pace to be one of just three players, and the only guard, to score 600 or more points in both the WNBA and overseas during the 2019-2020 seasons.
NKE-FCSM Csata pulled out another four-point win with an 88-84 victory at ZTE NKK. Gustafson scored 12 points to go along with her six rebounds and four assists, the most assists she has had in a game overseas this year, bringing the Iowa Icon's assist per game total to 1.1.
Samuelson is looking to find her stroke again in 2020 after ending 2019 on fire from beyond the arc. She was unable to find pay dirt in Avenada's 93-39 victory over Bembibre in limited minutes but played an important role on the defensive end, swiping two steals in an addition to an assist.
Thornton and the KB Stars (13-5) return to action this week at KEB Hanabank.
Johnson was able to hit the bottom of the net just once from beyond the arc in limited minutes but her three points were the difference in the game as Dynamo Kursk topped Nadezhda O. 68-66. The Volunteer Virtuoso has played string music seven times from deep since heading overseas and is shooting an impressive 41.2 percent since from downtown.
Harrison matched the Wings' Overseas scoring leaders with 19 points in a 71-59 victory at Della Fiore Broni, her fifth straight game with 10 or more points since heading overseas and seventh straight in professional play dating back to September 6, where she dropped 15 against the 2019 WNBA Champion Washington Mystics.
Anigwe joined the 19-point club this past weekend in an 87-69 victory at Elazig. The California product also grabbed fifteen rebounds for her third straight double-double, averaging 16.0 points and 12.3 rebounds per game after crossing the pond.
Davis returns to action on January 18th against Elazig.
