International Alumni Update: March 19

Tracking former Blue Devils playing their professional ball overseas

On Saturday, Kathleen Scheer finally made her competitive debut after injury concerns prevented her from playing earlier.  Kathleen missed the main Australian season for their national league, but she is now playing for the Hobart Chargers in the regional South East Australia league on Tasmania.  Her teammates include former Wisconsin-Milwaukee player Lindsay Laur and ex-San Diego player Izzy Chilcott.  In the first game, they defeated the Launceston Tornadoes 83-66.  Kathleen led all scorers with 22 points and added 10 rebounds in 30 minutes.  Laur had 20 points and 15 rebounds and Chilcott had 15 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists.  In the loss, ex-Iowa State player Lauren Mansfield had 16 points, 9 rebounds, and 6 assists.  Here is the box score

  Wisla Krakow did not have either Alana Beard or Tina Charles dress for Game 3 of the quarterfinals against Gorzow, but they did enough to hold off their opposition for a 62-59 win and a sweep of the series.  Erin Phillips had 11 points and 7 rebounds.  In the loss, ex-Syracuse player Chineze Nwagbo had 25 points and 15 rebounds.  Here is the box score

  DeMarcus Nelson and Red Star Belgrade continued to try to position themselves as well as possible for the Adriatic League Final Four as they hosted a Buducnost team that was trying to earn their own spot.  After being down early, the Serbian team surged ahead of their opponents from Montenegro and won 79-63.  DeMarcus had 3 points in 23 minutes and Mike Scott had 14 points and 7 rebounds.  Here is the box score

  On Sunday, Monique Currie and Pefumerias Avenida beat Conquero 85-75 as they took control in the second half.  Monique had 23 points in 31 minutes.  In the loss, ex-Baylor player Bernice Mosby had 17 points and 13 rebounds.  Here is the box score

  Jon Scheyer returned to the starting lineup as Gran Canaria beat Cajasol Sevilla 66-49.  Jon had 9 points in 19 minutes and Spencer Nelson had 13 points.  In the loss, Washington Wizards second round pick Tomas Satoransky had 15 points.  Here is the box score

  As Real Madrid continued to play without Marty Pocius, they were stunned at home in domestic competition as they lost 96-83 to Canarias.  Jaycee Carroll had 19 points, Sergio Rodriguez had 13 points, and Sergio Llull had 12 points.  In the win, ex-Western Michigan player Levi Rost had 18 points.  Here is the box score

  David McClure played in the Lithuanian All-Star Game.  As is popular in many of the European leagues, the matchup was between the foreign players and the local players with the Lithuanian team winning this one 140-113.  David had 2 points in 14 minutes.  The winning effort was a balanced one as nine of the twelve players scored in double figures.  Former Tennessee-Chattanooga player Mindaugas Katelynas, who plays for Lietuvos Rytas, had 14 points, David's teammate Deividas Gailius had 13 points, and Dallas Mavericks 2007 second round pick Renaldas Seibutis, who plays for Lietuvos Rytas, had 12 points.  In the loss, ex-Cincinnati player Yancy Gates, who plays for Pieno Zvaigzdes, had 22 points, ex-Detroit player Chase Simon, who plays for Siauliai, had 14 points, ex-Wisconsin player Trevon Hughes, who plays for Pieno Zvaigzdes, had 13 points, and Toronto Raptors second round pick Tomislav Zubcic, who plays for Lietuvos Rytas, had 11 points.

  While players who started at Duke but continued at another school are not usually covered in detail here, Taylor King has finished up his season in Taiwan.  Although his team did not have a good season, Taylor put together an impressive individual season that saw him among the league leaders in multiple statistical categories.  He led the league in both scoring and rebounding, with 24 points per game and nearly 14 rebounds per game.  He was also second in the league in steals at 2.1 per game, fifth in the league in blocks with 1.6 per game, and eighth in the league in assists with 2.8 per game.
