EUROLEAGUE WOMEN – No upsets on opening night of EuroLeague Women eighth-finals


BRNO (EuroLeague Women) - Ros Casares and CSKA Moscow remained undefeated in the EuroLeague Women with decisive victories on Tuesday but the best game of the night saw 2006 champions Gambrinus Sika Brno edge MiZo Pecs.

The game was knotted at 61-61 with 2:34 remaining when the Czech team scored a couple of baskets for a four-point edge.

Dalma Ivanyi buried her fourth three-pointer to close the gap to one, only for Zuzana Zirkova to answer immediately with a three-ball for Gambrinus.

After Ivanyi split a pair of free throws, Emilija Podrug stole the ball away from Hana Machova and buried a jump shot with 18 seconds left to leave MiZo trailing 68-67.

Gambrinus added three free throws to seal the win.

US Valenciennes stayed within striking distance for a half but were then blown away by undefeated Ros Casares.

The Valencia team led 40-30 early in the second half and then turned up the intensity on defense to pull away for a decisive 70-44 win.

CSKA Moscow beat Halcon Avenida 83-64 after getting 21 points from Ann Wauters.

Dynamo Moscow edged Lotos PKO BP 86-75.

Three minutes from the end, the score was level at 71-71 when Russian guard Olga Firsova buried a three-pointer to give Dynamo the lead for good.

Australia superstar Lauren Jackson poured in a game-high 34 points as Spartak Moscow Region rolled to a 93-67 triumph over TEO Vilnius.

Agnieszka Bibrzycka had 28 points, propelling Ekaterinburg to a 96-50 triumph.

Fenerbahce beat Wisla Can-Pack 78-61 after a 22-point show from USA international Cappie Pondexter.
