From Dynamo with love!
2014 Eurocup Women is an
all Russian affair

Dynamo Moscow and Dynamo Kursk will face each in the 2014 EuroCup Women final series. Dynamo Moscow who are the defending champions will meet the 2012 champions in the first all Russian final in the history of this competition.

Veuillez trouver des informations en français en bas de la page sur la deuxième manche de la demi-finale de l'Eurocoupe féminine 2014 pour les clubs français.

Villeneuve d'Ascq's 6-point lead from game one of the semi-final was gone after seven minutes. By the end of the first quarter Dynamo Moscow led the game (26-13) and the series by 7 points.

The Russians compiled a 17-2 run over the first two quarters before Villeneuve d'Ascq woke up.

The French side put together a 13-2 run to level the aggregate score with four minutes left to play in the first half.

This was as close as Villeneuve got to troubling the hosts (26-32) in this match. Dynamo Moscow were hitting over 50% of their shots and regained control of the game by the break (41-29).

Despite the efforts of Jo Gomis-Halilović (17 points, 5 assists and 3 steals) and Emma Meesseman (14 points, 4 assists and 2 blocks), Villeneuve missed too many shots to trouble the Russians.

Tina Charles helped herself to 21 points and 13 rebounds while Lindsay Whalen knocked down 14 points and dished out 6 assists to lead Dynamo Moscow to victory (86-66) in the second leg and 169-155 on aggregate.

In the other semi-final Dynamo Kursk suffered their first defeat in the EuroCup Women competition this season but still had enough points in the bag from game one to qualify for the final on aggregate (143-132).

The all-star roster of Universitesi Istanbul pushed the Russians all the way in an exciting match. But the (62-57) victory was not enough.

The EuroCup Women final will be played over two legs with the higher ranked team, Dynamo Kursk, playing the second game at home.

The first leg will take place on 20 March in Moscow, with the return leg scheduled for 27 March in Kursk.


EuroCoupe féminine
Villeneuve d'Ascq échoue en Russie

En Russie, Villeneuve d'Ascq n'arrive pas à tenir Dynamo Moscou qui marque plus que 50% de ses tirs et perd déjà dans les premières sept minutes de cette rencontre son avantage de la première manche de la demi-finale.

L'autre équipe Russe, Dynamo Kursk, succombe contre Universitesi Istanbul mais garde quand même un avantage de 11 points dans les deux manches de la demi-finale pour accéder à la finale contre Dynamo Moscou.

Malgré les efforts de Jo Gomis-Halilović (17 points, 5 passes décisives, 3 interceptions), Emma Meesseman (14 points, 4 passes décisives, 2 contres) et Elin Eldebrink (13 points), l'équipe française n'arrive pas à tenir tête à Dynamo Moscou avec de bonnes performances de Tina Charles (21 points, 13 rebonds) et Lindsay Whalen (14 points, 5 passes décisives). Dynamo Moscou gagne (86-66).

Un 17-2 dans le deuxième quart (26-32) est la seule révolte de Villeneuve d'Ascq pour après subir une défaite de 20 points et ainsi perdre les deux demi-finales par 7 points.

Par contre, Dynamo Kursk perd la deuxième manche de la demi-finale contre Universitesi Istanbul (57-62) mais se qualifie avec une marge de 11 points pour la finale.

Les meilleures joueuses pour l'équipe Turque sont Crystal Langhorne (16 points) et Michelle Campbell (12 points) pendant que Candice Dupree (14 points, 8 rebonds, 5 interceptions) et Seimone Augustus (13 points) emmènent l'équipe Russe.
