Frida Eldebrink did what sshe does best: put the ball in the basket, giving Rivas the win

Rivas Ecopolis coach Jose Hernandez enjoyed a winning return to Wisla Can-Pack as he drew up the perfect play for Frida Eldebrink to hit the game-winner in a 62-60 success in EuroLeague Women Group B on Wednesday.

Eldebrink finished with 18 points and was also instrumental in the 15-0 Rivas run that stretched from the third into the fourth quarter and gave them the chance of victory late on.

The Swedish international hit six straight points during that sequence to steady the visitors after they trailed by as many as 11 early in the second half.

Wisla had started well behind the sharp shooting of guard Alexandria Quigley, who finished with 12 points, and were up 34-23 at half-time.

The hosts' control continued into the second half as Jantel Lavender began to find her range but Rivas' big run changed all that.

Lavender did come up big in the fourth quarter, scoring six of her game-high 19 points - including a couple of clutch free throws, but there was still time for Eldebrink to edge it for Rivas.
