It was a tough week of games for Miranda and her team as they lost both of their matches-their first losses of the season in both LFB and EuroCup play.
Last Wednesday, BL traveled to Venice to take on Reyer Venezia in their first away game of the 2016-17 EuroCup season.
BL fell behind by 10 points after the first quarter, and started to chip away at Venezia’s lead but lost in the end by a score of 89-78.
In the loss, Miranda had her most productive offensive game of her season thus far – scoring a team high 19 points in 26 minutes.
Basket Landes then returned back home to take on Mondeville in Week 6 of LFB action on Saturday.
BL started off the game strong, building a 6 point lead into the half but unfortunately were outplayed in the second half and lost their first league game of the year by a score of 72-76.
Miranda played a team high 33 minutes, while contributing 10 points.
It was a reunion of sorts at the game as two of Miranda’s Canadian teammates, Michelle Plouffe and Kim Gaucher play for Mondeville.
A tough game tonight, but a Canadian reunion makes things much better… pic.twitter.com/rzCzKQSlIu

Next up, BL looks to rebound against a familiar Fribourg side in the 3rd leg of EuroCup action this Wednesday, November 9.
