WIESBADEN, Germany – The unbeaten Wiesbaden Warriors stayed that way with consecutive Friday and Saturday wins over a spirited Black Forest Academy squad. The Warriors won 37-30 on Friday and 43-30 on Saturday.
Fast starts set the tone for both Wiesbaden wins. The Warriors outscored BFA 14-4 on Friday and 15-6 on Saturday, establishing gaps that the Falcons couldn’t close despite matching or exceeding Wiesbaden’s third-quarter output in each game.
A balanced Warrior offense produced no double-figure scorers on the weekend; Crisheena Rolack led the team on both occasions with nine points. Cierra Martin matched Rolack’s nine points Friday and added eight on Saturday while grabbing 19 rebounds and nine steals on the weekend.
Emily Campbell scored 12 points Friday and eight on Saturday to pace the Falcons.
The 6-0 Warriors host Bitburg on Friday before travelling to Ramstein for a Division I matchup Saturday.
Ramstein 51/46, Baumholder 5/6: The Royals tuned up for the Warriors’ approaching visit with a home-and-home dismantling of the Bucs.
Lindsey Breton led Ramstein with 11 points on the road Friday and 15 at home Saturday.
The 7-1 Royals have won four consecutive games since a Dec. 14 double-overtime loss to Lakenheath.
Ansbach 41/41, Bitburg 40/36: Standout individual performances from Alyssa Solis and Jahkya Smith fueled the Cougars’ weekend sweep of their Division II rival.
Solis produced 20 points and 20 rebounds to start the weekend doubleheader. A day later, Smith posted a triple-double, piling up 19 points, 12 rebounds and 10 steals to complete the sweep.
Alexa Landenberger scored a combined 30 points on the weekend for Bitburg, while Saoirse Matthews totaled 27.
The 2-0 weekend brings Ansbach back to .500 after losing both of its games to Hohenfels last weekend. The Cougars will host Schweinfurt/Bamberg on Jan. 28.
Aviano 46/35, Marymount 6/7: At Aviano, the Saints posted comfortable Friday and Saturday wins.
Jasmyn Green scored 18 on Friday and 10 on Saturday, both game-high totals, as Aviano improved to 6-0 on the season. The Saints will visit Naples, Italy’s other unbeaten Division II squad, for a pair of games next weekend.
Naples 30/43, Sigonella 21/26: A well-rounded Wildcat offense fought off upset bids from the lower-division Jaguars.
Two players scored in double figures in each game for Naples. Keylee Soto scored a game-high 13 on Friday, Daria Andrews led all scorers with 13 on Saturday and Shanice Alexander scored 11 and 12 points, respectively.
Katie Cauble scored 10 points in each game for Sigonella, while teammate Sydney Moore gathered 12 rebounds Friday and 10 on Saturday.
Vilseck 31, Hohenfels 26: Friday at Hohenfels, a fourth-quarter outburst broke open a tight game and delivered the Falcons their first win since Dec. 7.
The teams were tied 2-2 through one quarter and knotted at 13 at the half.
Hohenfels pulled ahead in the third quarter before a 14-5 fourth-quarter barrage settled the issue in Vilseck’s favor.
China Sumpter led Vilseck with 16 points and 15 rebounds. Shelby Atkinson and Kirsten Atkinson had eight points apiece for the Tigers.
