Dynn Leaupepe Wins Bronze Medal at Pacific Games; Lynn Signs in Spain

Dynn Leaupepe Wins Bronze Medal at Pacific Games; Lynn Signs in Spain

The Leaupepe twins' pro basketball successes overseas keep rolling this summer, as Cal Poly grad Dynn Leaupepe won a bronze medal at the Pacific Games in Apia, Samoa, while her sister, fellow Mustang alumna Lynn Leaupepe, has signed with Ausarta Barakaldo in Spain.

Dynn, playing for the Samoa National Team, led her squad to victory with a 50-point performance in the third-place game over Guam, 87-85 on Wednesday. She scored the last four points of the day, including the game-winning jumper with 19 seconds to play.

In addition to hitting the half-century mark, Dynn corralled 21 rebounds in the finale. Overall for the tournament, she averaged 33.7 points (leading the Games), along with 16.0 rebounds (second-highest in the field) and 3.3 steals (third throughout).

American Samoa won the gold — 74-53 over Fiji — in a rematch of the 2015 final, en route to the FIBA Asia Cup.

With tournament play concluded, Dynn will next return to her Spanish LF2 club, BAXI Ferrol, with whom she signed in June following her rookie year culminated as the 2019 Dameligaen Player of the Year (for BK Amager out of Kastrup, Denmark).

Meanwhile, Lynn Leaupepe is also ultimately headed to the Iberian Peninsula, signing with her new club (about four hours to the east of her sister, also along the northern coastline) via the Sunbury Jets in Australia.

With two regular-season games remaining through the end of July in her debut season with the Jets, Lynn is averaging 19.0 points on 61.8-percent overall shooting.

She also came into the week averaging 5.9 rebounds and 2.3 steals while helping Sunbury to a 13-3 mark to hold first place in the Big V standings.
