EuroCup Women
A good evening in terms of victories
for France

The three French clubs completed the EuroCup Women double over their opponents from the first round of games on day one of round four of the ECW.

Arras did not show any mercy to BBC Sint-Katelijne-Waver and ran away with a comfortable victory (73-37).

Despite a slow start in the first quarter, Arras were never in danger (16-10) and ended the game as a contest during the second quarter (39-18).

Yet it was not a vintage performance of Arras who were without Pauline Akonga-N'Simba who had been injured during the weekend.

Nantes-Rezé won at home (66-54) against AD Vagos. But Laurent Buffard was far from happy with the way his side finished the match.

Flavia Dos Santos from Vagos caused many problems for Nantes with her general play and 19 points. However for the hosts Caroline Aubert with 10 points and 7 assists made sure that her team stayed in front all the way. Doriane Tahane was the team's top scorer with 18 points.

Saint Amand Union Hainaut completed the hat trick for the French clubs with a hard fought victory against Lemminkainen (79-64). Union Hainaut never trailed in the game with Corinne Bénintendi sticking with a six-player roster.
