ITA - Brilliant Branzova on song for MKB Euroleasing


NAPLES (EuroLeague Women) - Albena Branzova is, as they like to say in sports, long in the tooth at 36 years of age, but in no way have the veteran Bulgarian center's skills diminished.

Branzova had 26 points to lead MKB Euroleasing to a 74-61 triumph over Phard Napoli on Thursday in the Euroleague Women - their first on the road in the competition this season.

Her previous high had been 17 points in a game against CSKA Moscow on December 5.

MKB won the game, despite falling behind 12-0 at the start of the game.

With Branzova making four of five three-pointers, they charged back to win comfortably, their fourth in eight games in Group A.

MKB coach Norbert Székely said: "It has been a very important game. It's our first victory on a foreign court.

"At the beginning, we suffered a lot because of the man-to-man defense but after we changed and started controlling the rebounds, we gained the run that has permitted us to win."

Former USA international Chamique Holdsclaw had 24 points and 12 rebounds to lead Lotos PKO BP Gdynia to a 71-66 win at US Valenciennes.

And Marta Fernandez reminded everyone that she has a great chance to play for Spain at next year's Olympics after pouring in 24 points to fire Wisla Can-Pack Krakow to a 90-85 win at ZVVZ Prague.

Fernandez missed last year's EuroBasket Women but Spain still pushed Russia to the limit in the gold medal game before settling for silver.
