On Twitter, Chamique Holdsclaw had some sharp words for the Bulgarian fans.
@Chold1 Jus played n da most hostile gym ever. Omg cats was spitting throwing receipt rolls. I was about to get my Ron Artest on fuk dat.
@Chold1 I’ve been playing in Europe for 8years and never experienced anything like this. Like I was waiting for spit to connect.
A box score of the game can be found here. It’s odd that the FIBA Europe site doesn’t even have a play-by-play.
Holdsclaw did not take part in this game, probably because she joined the team mid-season. I’ve still not been able to find out any information about the game between K. V. Imperial and AEK Larnaca on January 10th. If I learn anything, I’ll let you know.
