2013 EuroCup Women
quarter-final game 1 round-up


Nantes-Rezé's EuroCup Women quarter-final victory against MBK Ruzomberok (56-51) was the only road victory in the first leg matches.

All the hosts in the other matches made home court advantage count to the maximum with double-digit wins.

Just like in the the 2012 EuroCup Women final, Kayseri Kaskispor beat the holder Dynamo Kursk in the first game (101-86).

Evanthia Maltsi (21 points), Latoya Sanders (22 points) and Zoi Dimitrakou (23 points) combined for a total of 66 points while 2012 EuroLeague Women Final 8 MVP Ashija Jones added 14 points.

For the defending champions Michelle Snow was the leading player with 19 points. 

Isis Arrondo

Nantes-Rezé were made to work hard to overcome MBK Ruzomberok  (56-51) for a precious 5-point lead going into the second game.

Yuliya Andreyeva found her range from behind the three-point line (4-of-8) to lead the scoring with 16 points. Isis Arrondo (right) was equally impressive from the land of many with 4-from-6 in her 14 points. Gunta Basko-Melnbarde controlled the defensive boards to pick up 10 rebounds in her total of 12.

Nadia Parker and Katarina Tetemondova scored 13 and 10 points for the hosts.

French teams' record playing in Russia has become worse with Hainaut Basket and Lattes Montpellier falling to BC Chevakata and Dynamo Moscow respectively.

For Hainaut Basket Petra Stampalija led the way with 21 points.
