Hi,

the reason I'm starting this is because the league is a pretty interesting project, imho, and, maybe more importantly, because I'm proud of our Teo Vilnius, who beat USA NT on monday. I mean, Wooo Hoooo! :D Teo also beat the Canberra Capitals yesterday.
anyways, we lost our first game to CSKA by too many points (I'd better not even post the score here ;)) and this means our two wins are useless as Teo took third place in the group due to uSA beating CSKA. This means CSKA and US advance to the semis.

anyways, I thought the result was interresting. Also note the narrow victory US took against CSKA in their final group match. to be honest, I believe that top Euroleague (men's) clubs could also challenge top NTs, including USA. however, I'm not sure it would ever make any sense ;) let's keep it the way it is on the men's side..

Maybe it will be nice to open a thread in the russian forum about the russian women superleague,it is just the wnba of europe.:D
