Shanxi had another game on Tuesday. And Moore was not quite as dominant. She only had 43 points, nine rebounds, five assists, five steals and three blocks as Shanxi beat Yunnan 92-72 win. The Flame are 13-3 now, in first place in the WCBA with six regular season games left.
Elizabeth Cambage’s Zhejiang team is 11-4 in the Women's Chinese Basketball Association standings.
Before Tuesday's game, Moore was averaging 41.8 points, 12.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 3.7 steals and 1.5 blocks per game. She is shooting 55.6% (65-for-117) from the field and 40.0% (26-for-65) from three-point range. She probably should be wearing a big S for Superwoman on her jersey.
Catchings was averaging 25.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 3.5 steals and 1.0 blocks per game after her team's loss to the Flame on 60.3% (38-for-63) shooting.

I'm happy to report that today will be even nicer than yesterday! That's a pretty low bar, granted, but we should top 80F today with some sunshine, higher humidity and a few stray T-storms. 80s will be the rule this week, with warmer than average weather spilling into Labor Day weekend. The risk of a Gulf Coast hurricane seems to be increasing again - water temperatures in the Gulf are very warm, which may fuel a big storm within a few days.
