What started at Rutgers the last three years, had a couple month stop in Russia is now headed for Botas Spor, a team in Adana, Turkey – an American-friendly city near a United States military base about 90 minutes by airplane from Istanbul.
Epiphanny Prince began her professional playing career for Spartak Moscow and Head Coach Pokey Chatman.
I heard she had yet to play because owner Shabtai von Kalmanovic was working on her Russian pass port when tragedy struck. Piph is fortunate to land in Turkey. This could be a blessing in disguise for Prince. More playing time is on the horizon and that will give WNBA General Managers a more valuable body of work to assess her draft status.
The story does not elaborate on how the progress is going towards moving her family from their Brooklyn home. The focus of Piph’s journey has been reported as two-fold: 1.) Provide for her family and 2.) Prepare better for WNBA.
Let’s update this in a month and see how her progress is going.
