MAC basketball stars doin' work overseas

Crystal Bradford came up huge for USA in the World University Games. Also, two Toledo players helped Spain to the Under-20 championship game.


We're in the dead zone of basketball season, but Crystal Bradford never rests. She just helped send USA to the Women's World University Games finals in Kazan, Russia.

Back on July 8 she scored six points and six rebounds in a 120-32 romp of Mali. The next day she netted 11 points and seven boards in a 101-61 win over the Czech Republic, then upped that with 12 points, four rebounds and three assists in a 105-75 win over Brazil.

In the quarterfinal against Sweden, she continued work with 11 points and six rebounds as part of a 103-72 victory. Versus Australia she scored just nine points, but most importantly that go-ahead bucket.

Elsewhere in international women's MACsketball, the FIBA Under-20 championship finals in Turkey features Spain and a pair of Toledo players: Inma Zanoguera, who has averaged 10.4 points and leads the team in assists and steals; and Elena De Alfredo, who is fourth in scoring. They will take on Italy in the championship tomorrow afternoon/night/whatever you want to call it depending on the continent you're on.
