ACES ABROAD: EuroLeague & EuroCup Update, November 29, 2019

Where In The World Are The Aces?

Many WNBA players take their talents overseas during the “offseason,” and the Aces are no exception. In addition to playing in country-specific leagues, some teams also participate in the EuroLeague and EuroCup.

Kayla McBride (UMMC Ekaterinburg), Kelsey Bone (Polkowice), and Kelsey Plum (Fenerbahce) all play in the EuroLeague, and their games are broadcast live on YouTube (links included below).

Moriah Jefferson (Galatasaray) plays in the EuroCup.

Check the official online home of the Aces each week for updates on how your favorite players are performing in their adopted countries.
