 Basket Lattes Montpellier Agglomération 2009-2010   © Ligue Féminine de Basket

Lattes Montpellier secured their second EuroCup Women victory with a comfortable away win against Ruzomberok (68-40).

Montpellier led from start to finish with Constance Jinks leading the scoring with 15 points. But the player of the match was Khadijah Whittington with a double-double of 11 points and 11 rebounds. She also had 2 steals and 2 blocks.

USO Mondeville had a much tougher game and just held off Seat Györ (61-58).

The Hungarian side had two players who are well known in France: Orsolya Englert (Arras and Reims) and Hajdana Radunovic.

Mondeville went into the final quarter leading (52-51) and survived with two minutes left to play in front (61-54) with 2 points coming from Pauline Thizy.

The hosts came back with a late flourish. However the final three-point attempt by Angela Demis fell short.

Lenae Williams, the only player from Mondeville in double digits, scored 18 points. Englert and Radunovic led the scoring for the hosts with 20 and 10 points respectively.
