Igor Polenek, the head coach of Sopron was forced into making tactical changes with Kelly Faris not able to play.

Lattes-Montpellier : nouvelle défaite, grosse déception

Le groupe avec Bourges Basket est au repos cette journée ayant que cinq équipes pendant que Lattes-Montpellier échoue dans sa requête d'une victoire en EuroLigue féminine. En même temps, sa défaite propulse son adversaire UE Sopron à la deuxième place dans ce groupe.

Quoique Géraldine Robert (16 points) et Héléna Ciak (12 points) temptent de s'emparer de Tianna Hawkins sous le panier, c'est Hawkins qui domine (27 points, 9 rebonds) pour donner une victoire à UE Sopron (61-54).

Manque d'adresse au shoot et que 29 prises contre 42 au rebond fait la différence.
