Another sensational effort by Jantel Lavender was the highlight for Wisla Can-Pack as they inched closer to the EuroLeague Women play-offs with an 80-56 rout of Uniqa EuroLeasing Sopron.

Having already beaten the Hungarians on the road, Wisla comfortably completed the double over their rivals in Krakow behind another wonderful line from their prize asset.

Lavender accumulated 20 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two blocks on a wonderful night of work.

Most impressively, she missed just one shot in a spectacular 10-of-11 shooting display after making her first ten attempts before finally firing a blank with just 90 seconds left on the game clock.

The visiting defence struggled to cope with an initial bombardment from the home side and leaked 29 points in the first 10 minutes to fall behind by 15 points.

Despite managing to shore-up their defence during the middle two quarters and even briefly threatening to bring themselves back into contention, Sopron had no answer to Lavender.

Wisla clicked back up a gear in the last quarter as their opponents imploded, with Danielle McCray adding a nice 12 points and five assists for the hosts.

The loss was tough on Tianna Hawkins who had a huge game with 33 points and 11 rebounds for Sopron.
