Hoops Capital’s stars continue to shine all around the world, as the build-up to the 2024-25 season starts.

From the Sydney Flames perspective, Lauren Nicholson continues to shine in Spain.

In her third appearance for Spar Girona in the Liga Femenina, the Sutherland product scored a game-high 17 points, as her side defeated IDK Euskotren 78-57 in San Sebastián.

In the triumph, which moves Spar Girona to 15-10 on the season, Nicholson also had three rebounds, three triples, two assists and one block across her 28 minutes on the court.

Next up for Girona is Celta Baloncesto on March 28.

Moving on to the Kings and young gun Jaylin Galloway made his G League debut with the Wisconsin Herd recently, producing six points (on 3/7 shooting), five rebounds, two assists and one block across 25 minutes.

Since then, Galloway and his Herd played a pair of fixtures against the Motor City Cruise at the Oshkosh Arena.

In the first, the two-time NBL champion had two points, two rebounds and two assists in his side’s 109-106 defeat.

The following day, the 21-year-old tallied two points, four boards and one dime in the Herd’s 104-100 loss.

Next up for Wisconsin is the Capital City Go-Go on Wednesday, March 21 at the Entertainment and Sports Arena.


To Europe and Jordi Hunter recorded his first win with Rigas Zelli over the weekend.

In the 59-56 victory over Tartu Ülikool Maks and Moorits, Hunter contributed one point, five rebounds, one assist and one block.

That win moves Rigas Zelli into sixth on the Latvian-Estonian Basketball League ladder.

They’ll look to make it two wins on the bounce on Saturday, March 23 against BK Liepaja at Arena Riga.
