    She must be having fun since she's smiling in the several team pictures @cdzamarat ( http://cadenaser00.epimg.net/ser/ima...l_recorte1.jpg , https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DpYNjLsWwAAhSEw.jpg:large , https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DpUT99uXgAEra1p.jpg:large , https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DpTmM6PW0AI3fZV.jpg , https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DpaqiOdWsAICfGD.jpg:large , https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DpabejUW0AE2-jm.jpg:large , https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DpAs7FxX4AA9n0s.jpg:large ).

    But they lost to Araski by 4 points in their first official game, in spite of Carlie tieing team-mate Laura Quevedo for high-point scorer at 17 points each. Here's the somewhat stilted Google translation of the caption on the first link above:

    "The Zamarat Quesos El Pastor has begun its journey this season in Liga Día (Division of Women's Honor) with defeat to Araski, 69-65 (note: "defeat to" means "defeated by").

    Despite the good start of Fran Garcia (13-9 in the first quarter), came to rest with equality on the scoreboard (27-26), and in the third quarter the Vitoria were ahead with a lead of five points (45-50) that they knew how to keep until the end.

    Laura Quevedo and Carlie Wagner were the top scorers in the orange box, with 17 points each. This time Chelsea Nelson stayed at 10, and they certainly missed their points. Interestingly it was the base Aleksandra Stanacev the maximum rebounder, and by far (11 rebounds)

    After the Open Day, which is being played this weekend in Torrejón, on the second day the Zamarat will move to Lugo to face the Ensino, next Wednesday, at 20.45."

    (No mention of Carlie but) if you want an even bigger "translation laugh" then paste the next post ( https://www.laopiniondezamora.es/dep...4/1116578.html ) into Google Translate.

    There is an hour-long video at https://twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1MnxnZMQlaoxO (or mobile.twitter... for smart phone) that is pretty boring (some kind of pre-season celebration or something), but if you fast forward to 19:00, Carlie's team is presented as they walk onto the stage. Other league teams are presented as well. With many of us Gopher fans born in Minnesota/Scandinavian territory, it's a bit surprising to see how many 5'2" guards play in the top-level Spanish women's professional basketball league. I suppose that back home, Irene Garrido Perez (at 6'1") might well be playing Center, instead of Small Forward.

    Since this thread is somewhat International/Spanish, I'll note that the Spanish national team won the Bronze at the FIBA World Cup. Ex-Lynx guard Anna Cruz ( https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Cruz ) played for Spain. Australia took the Silver, beating Spain to enter the FIBA final for the 2nd time ever. Liz Cambage had some interesting comments about the Australia/Spain rivalry and the need to promote womens' basketball in general ( http://www.fiba.basketball/en/womens...griner-and-usa ). As expected, USA took the Gold Cup. Stewie was FIBA MVP, repeating her achievement as WNBA/Finals MVP.

    Thanks for posting this update. I was hopeful she might end up with the Lynx as a back up guard.

    I don’t think it’s too likely, to be honest. Maybe she’ll get a camp invite, but there will only be one guard spot open next year (vacated by Whalen). If the Lynx pick a guard at #6, Wagner definitely won’t make the team (unless there’s a surprise retirement by Augustus or Wright), no matter how improved she might be. If the Lynx don’t draft a guard at #6 (which is my hope since they really need post players), then they’ll draft at least one guard with the #16, #18, and #20 picks. That’s a good area for Kenisha Bell to get drafted, and I suspect Reeve has fallen in love with her, watching her as a season ticket holder for the last couple of years.

    A 2 point loss in OT, but not for lack of effort by Carlie. She was top scorer with 20 points on 57% shooting, including 3/6 from deep. 6 rebounds and 3 assists.

    Carlie had her first Spanish presser ( https://twitter.com/Zamora24horas/st...04875525160961 and https://www.zamora24horas.com/texto-...-universitaria ).

    Notes say something like (although comments by Ángel García sound more like pre-game comments, so maybe it was a pre-game presser) …

    Carlie Wagner: "It's hard to adapt to the game in Spain when you come from a university league"

    Ángel García:

    The orange outside will play his second league match with CD Zamarat and believes that the team is ready to add the first victory. The American recognizes that she is noticing an important change between the university league and the professional one.
    Room for improvement. The other day I think we did not play a bad game and we had chances to win. I think that the defensive issue is what is costing us the most. Situations like the one against one, the helps ... are basic things that we must continue working.

    The most positive. From what I see in practice I think that in attack we are a good team, we have a lot of talent and players that can score. That can be one of our strengths.

    Adaptation to the professional league. It is true that it is difficult to adapt to the game in Spain when you come from a university league and that is costing me. The main change is that in the university it is important to run more and have good physical condition, but in the professional league it is necessary to have more tactical, mental control and be well in the lead.

    Wednesday duel We must try to continue doing well what we already did well the other day and improve the bad. Of the game against Araski I prefer that there were stages in which we executed the plays well, in defense we adjusted well ... They were streaks, and the important thing for this Wednesday is to maintain those good feelings for more minutes.

    Comments say something like …

    Orange effort in vain
    Quesos El Pastor squandered a nine-point lead in the fourth quarter and gave in extra time to a fighter Durán Ensino Lugo

    (photo caption: Wagner tries to leave one of his rivals for the bottom line.)

    Quesos El Pastor yesterday fitted its second league defeat by falling 73-71 on the track of a Duran Ensino Lugo who knew how to resist the best minutes of orange play and overcome ten points of difference in the last quarter. An achievement with which the Galician forced an extension that was resolved in the last seconds against the set of Fran García.

    He started the match with the first ball for a Duran Ensino Lugo who tried to assert the weight and height of his pivots in orange paint from the first moment. Thus, with Nyingifa as a standard, the Galicians quickly took advantage in the score, taking advantage of the first mistakes of El Pastor Cheese in not very fluid attacks.

    Nelson put the first Zamora basket of the match to reduce a disadvantage that was alternating throughout the first quarter between the two and the four points. The difference seemed to stagnate in the first four minutes of the game and, although it was the locals who cut a period of failures in one area and another getting the 15-8 in the light, was the picture of Fran Garcia who better played the last minutes of the initial period.

    Wagner warned with his first failed attempt of three the strategy that the oranges were going to follow to overcome. Circular the ball with speed and look for its exteriors to either penetrate or throw from the perimeter. A bet that, together with a significant improvement in the offensive rebound, allowed the visitors to gradually cut the differences. Stanacev from the free throw line and a penetration by Wagner put the score in a tight 15-12.

    The Galicians tried to defend their small income but they were Ainhoa ​​López first and Wagner later -just before honking the horn- who with their triples ended up taking Quesos El Pastor to come back before the second period (17-18).
    Zamora's joy lasted what it took to start the second quarter. A period as balanced as it was the first although, this time, with Quesos El Pastor carrying the weight of the stake and also the front in the electronic.

    They scored the Lucenses in the first action of the second quarter but Stanacev, with a big triple, showed that the oranges were going to sell expensive their position of privilege in the light. And so it was then, although Durán Ensino tried to filter both balloons to paint and penetrations, visitors found the formula to respond in the rival ring. A reverse of Nelson, for example (21-23, m.13),

    The Galicians tried to climb a step the intensity of the crash taking advantage of its wide bench and, at times, managed to put in trouble to a Cheese El Pastor who gave his advantage from the free throw line from where Novo put the 24-23. Fortunately, the Zamarat found strength to react and with the visit of Laura Quevedo to the personnel line, her great connection with Nelson to score a good tray and another basket of the Pivot, the local revolution was stifled. Even more so when, minutes later, Stanecev took a beneficial "two plus one" that added to a counterattack put put Quevedo put the 32-35 with which came to rest.

    Quesos El Pastor had set the meeting on track and would do so even more during a third glorious quarter. A period that opened with difficulties, since he was not able to score during his first two minutes, but in which he was very successful once Wagner plugged the first from beyond the line of three.

    Duran Ensino tried to cut differences but Wagner was in a state of grace and, well escorted by a notable Stanecev and Ainhoa Lopez, the rent did nothing but increase (38-49, m.26).

    The locals looked for points in actions of Nyingifa and Aliaga but the good defense of a Cheeses El Pastor that always attacked in a thoughtful way, prevented any local revolution. He could even give the "lace" the picture of Fran García to his rival with a shot of Lo Sylla but, yesterday, was totally unfortunate.

    With 43-52 started the last quarter of the game and started the orange debacle. Lo Sylla missed the umpteenth ball under the basket and Duran Ensino got into the game with two free throws from Novo.

    The Galicians, with more bench, took the duel to a more physical plane. They drowned the orange attack and little by little, they were cutting differences. Largely because Miller took the bounce in the Zamorano hoop and Duran Ensino got too many extra attacks.

    The first cheese basket El Pastor arrived late, with a triple Stanacev that was 48-55. A basket that, like the subsequent great action of Wagner, did not prevent Durán Ensino from growing and the oranges were diluted until the last minute with the water around his neck.

    The outcome was widely unfortunate because, despite losing the locals the option to tie the game on a free throws less than half a minute, the rebound was the last at the hands of Miller to put a 63-63 that Silk did not hit to avoid being alone in Galician painting two seconds from the final whistle. The failed was accompanied by the horn and 63-63 sent the game to overtime.

    The five minutes of the extension had a script similar to the one lived during the match but with a more bitter outcome for Quesos El Pastor.

    Ensino began scoring, the Zamora responded and went on to lead the scoring to subsequently re-flop and leave the game open for the last few bars. A few final moments in which Breedlove stood as a protagonist, putting the final 73-71 with a mid-distance shot without time for Quesos El Pastor to react.
