Most of the favourites qualify for next round of EuroCup Women
For Mondeville the EuroCup Women is over after a (140-99) aggregate score defeat against Dynamo Kurst.
They needed to win the second leg by 21 points but with Natasa Ivancevic joining the injury list last weekend the task of pulling off a victory was reduced.
The game itself was very physical and with the officials having an off day, two players had to be ejected before things calmed down.
Unfortunately for Mondeville it was Jennifer Digbeu (right) who was ejected with Varvara Psareva with 27 minutes played. Mondeville were trailing (30-47) at that time.
With another key player out of the picture Mondeville had no chance of making up the deficit and ended up losing (72-51).
For Challes-les-Eaux the European season is also over after finishing level (51-51) in Greece against Ravenna Esperides.
Tarbes are the only French club still in the competition and will meet Cras Basket Taranto in the next round.
What happened elsewhere in the EuroCup Women
Athinaikos BC completed the double against Sandra Dijon-Gerardin 's (right) team SK Cesis (90-72) for an aggregate victory (158-129).
Rivasecopolis were without Cathy Joens who was seriously injured during the weekend and ended up losing at home (70-79) to Cypriot side K. V. Imperial AEL.
Rivesecopolis went into the second leg trailing (58-62) and kept the game close throughout the first three quarters.
The game reached its climax with 57 seconds left to play in the game when the teams were level on aggregate score after Laura Camp hit a jumper for Rivesecopolis.
The visitors held their nerve at the free-throw line to regain the advantage and eventually win the match.
In the all Spanish game Ibiza-PDV followed up their first leg victory with a (78-61) victory against Extrugasa.
One of the favourites Dynamo Moscow beat Solna Vikings from Sweden for the second time (89-57) to ease into the next round.
It was a disappointment for another of the favourites, the Hungarian club side Zeviép as they lost at home to Greek outfit Panionios G.S.S (64-69).
Zeviép lost the first leg by a single point and were expected to overcome the deficit.
Université BC Neuchâtel had a 14 point lead from their first leg home victory against Chevakata.
