EuroLeague Women basketball has taken off

Sparta&K Moscow raced out to a (16-2) lead against Galatasaray MP and never looked back as they cruised to victory (66-40).

It was an excellent night for the other home teams in the same group as Sparta&K: Tarbes held off ZVVZ USK Prague (81-77) while Halcon Avenida beat VICI Aistes (75-55).

In Group A Candice Dupree and Charde Houston combined for 40 points as Good Angels Kosice beat USO Mondeville (76-57).

In the other games from the group Wisla Can-Pack were forced to work hard in taking down Pécs 2010 (70-68). However TTT Riga were not so lucky and lost at home (49-72) to Cras Basket.

The game of the night was the Group B game played in Fenerbahçe.
