Basket Landes used a lot of energy chasing after the score during the second quarter without ever going in front. They went into the interval trailing (25-30).

The hosts took control for good with a 21-6 run during the first seven minutes of the third quarter (51-31).

Basket Landes struggled to break down their opponents' defense and spent most of the time taking wild shots half way through the final quarter (51-58).

VS Prague did not allow Basket Landes to get any closer as Lenka Bartáková (14 points and 6 assists), Marshae Dotson (10 points) and Aliaksandra Tarasava (13 points and 6 assists) resumed offensive duties to finish the game.

For Basket Landes Carmen Guzman top scored with 14 points while Tamara Abalda and Valériane Ayayi added 12 and 10 points each.
