A three-pointer by Svetlana Abrosimova with nine minutes to play broke the deadlock and Dynamo took hold of the match for good.

Kristi Toliver exploded offensively in the final quarter with 9 of her 16 points as Dynamo fought to open up a significant advantage.

However with Lara Sanders (11 points) and Evanthia Maltsi (17 points) hitting free throws down the stretch of the last four minutes the Turkish side minimised the damage and trailed by just five points at the end of the game. 2012 EuroLeague Women Final 8 MVP Asjha Jones led the way with a game high 18 points.

For Dynamo Moscow the following players finished in double-digit scores: Toliver 16, Crystal Langhorne 13 (13 rebounds), Tatiana Vidmer 10, Abrosimova 10.
