Goal broke the news a week ago following reports the club released six players, including the former Super Falcons captain in preparation for their 2020-21 season, according to French tabloid the Telegram. Other players also affected alongside Oparanozie were Manon Toti, Juliette Merle, Ekaterina Tyryshkina, Carlin Hudson and Agathe Fauvel, while Mali striker Aissata Traore and Cameroon midfielder Jeannette Yango were retained.

Before joining Guingamp from Turkey, she previously starred for Bayelsa and Delta Queens in Nigeria before launching her professional career in Europe with an initial loan to Turkish side Luleburgaz 39 Spor in 2011. In 2012, She later joined Russian giants Rossiyanka, where she scored twice in 11 games, with one of her goals for Rossiyanka coming in her first-ever Uefa Women’s Champions League campaign against Sparta Praha the same year. She moved on from the Russian side to German club Wolfsburg on a two-year deal, but only managed to feature in one match for the senior team and later being relegated to the B-team which saw her return to Turkey with Atasehir. “After six fantastic years playing in France for Guingamp, I won’t be continuing with them for the next season.

Summer League MVP Lonzo Ball prepares to return to Las Vegas

first_imgEL SEGUNDO — Lonzo Ball’s debut as a Laker was entirely forgettable. The prized rookie arrived at the Las Vegas Summer League with massive expectations and promptly clanked 13 shots, including 10 3-point attempts. Ball’s father, LaVar, called it his “worst game ever.”What came next was the most important lesson Ball learned in Las Vegas, where the Lakers will play a preseason game against Sacramento on Sunday.“Once you play a game forget about it and move on,” Ball said. “In college you get a week. You can sit up, sit back and watch film and stuff. But the NBA it’s a quick turnaround.”Ball obviously recovered just fine. He averaged 16.3 points over the six games he played, leading the field in assists (9.3 per game), and was crowned Summer League MVP en route to a Lakers tournament championship. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“I just went out there and played the game I know how to play,” Ball said. “Started slow, finished strong. That’s all there was to it.”The No. 2 overall pick in June’s draft, Ball was a limited participant in Lakers practice on Friday. He is still recovering from the sprained left ankle he suffered in Monday’s loss to Denver. The mild injury kept him out of an exhibition game Wednesday in Ontario, and could prevent him for playing Sunday.“I’ll make the trip,” Ball said, “but whether I’ll play or not it’s too tough to tell.”On Friday, Ball “went over some plays” but was held out of the five-on-five portions of the practice.“Just being out there with my team,” Ball said. “Showing them I’m still here for them. Regardless of whether I play Sunday or not, I’m going to be here.” Coach Luke Walton said Ball would have played Wednesday had the regular season already begun, but given that it’s still the exhibition season there is no reason to rush him back.“We would love to have him out there obviously,” Walton said. “But … if he is not ready to go then he won’t play.”For Walton, watching Ball at summer league proved “he is capable of doing it at this level.”It didn’t matter that the rosters were populated mostly by rookies and a lot of players who will never make it to the NBA.“He makes the gym exciting to be in,” Walton said. “I was just observing out there and kind of evaluating. When he is playing basketball it is fun to sit there and watch. That is what he is going to bring to our team.”In two preseason games before spraining his ankle, Ball averaged 6.5 points, 6 assists and 4.5 rebounds.Forward Brandon Ingram, who missed Wednesday’s game with a bruised head, was a full participant on Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday.NUMBERS AS NEWSIt was only a few years ago that the Lakers were viewed as well behind the curve in the analytics movement. That has certainly changed, and on Friday the team announced a new director of basketball analytics.A Harvard graduate, Jason Rosenfeld previously had the same title working in the league office, where he developed new statistics – like hustle plays – to better evaluate players.In May, Rosenfeld’s predecessor, Yuju Lee, resigned from the position rather than accept a demotion, according to an ESPN report.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
