SVG Lüneburg surprised everyone last year by making it all the way to the Finals in the DVV Cup, and they're on their way back now thanks to Nick Del Bianco (Surrey, BC).

Coming up big this week for Dabrowa Gornicza was Becky Pavan (Kitchener, ON), who led her team to a 3-1 win over Bydgoszcz with 16 points. Having moved to right side, Pavan's strong blocking caused some serious problems, picking up a match high three blocks as well.
