GAME REPORT


Avenida Start Quick, Rise Above Schio

14. Eshaya Murphy (Perfumerias Avenida)
Eshaya Murphy started right back from where she had left off for Perfumerias Avenida

CB Avenida made a hot start to scorch Beretta Famila Schio 90-65 on the road on Wednesday and hand new coach Alberto Miranda a winning return to EuroLeague Women.

The Spanish club took control of this Group B game early, surging into a 19-3 lead in just over six minutes as Eshaya Murphy rattled in nine quick points in a 13-0 run.

The Italian champions simply could not keep up as Avenida got out on the break time and again, stretching the lead to an insurmountable 28-6 after 10 minutes.

The hosts did stem the flow at one stage, even making a good start to the fourth quarter behind the inside scoring of summer signing Chiney Ogwumike.

But Avenida, who Miranda had previously coached in this competition before taking charge once again in the summer, were already out of sight.

Murphy finished the game with 24 points, a tally matched only by Ogwumike, who will be encouraged by her European debut.

The American struggled for support, however, whereas Marija Rezan added 13 points and 14 rebounds for Avenida and Angelica Robinson scored 14.

 

 

COACH QUOTES


Quotes: Beretta Famila vs. CB Avenida

Eshaya Murphy, CB Avenida
"Congratulations to Schio, they are a good team. We knew that is so difficult to play in Palacampagnola but we played well. All the team played a good match and we got a nice win here."

 

Alberto Miranda, CB Avenida Head Coach
"We watched Schio playing in the Italian Championship and we knew that they are a good team. We played strong defence and we shot very well offensively: this was the key of the match. I'm very satisfied with my team."


Katalin Honti, Schio
"I don't know what happened. It's not good to lose by 25 points. We had to play well to win against Avenida but we didn't do it."


Miguel Mendéz, Schio Head Coach
"We started slowly and Avenida played very well, like every team have to do to win in EuroLeague Women. The first quarter conditioned us for all the match. We must think a lot about this loss."
