GAME REPORT


McCoughtry Magic Fuels Fenerbahce

35. Angel McCoughtry (Fenerbahce)
Angel McCoughtry's double-double kept Fenerbahce's winning record intact

Another dazzling display by Angel McCoughtry propelled Fenerbahce to an impressive 67-51 success at Nadezhda Orenburg as the Turkish juggernauts preserved their perfect record in EuroLeague Women Group B.

The small forward continued her terrific form this season to underpin a victory that halted a five-game winning streak for the home side and racked up win number nine for the visiting team.

McCoughtry was a handful at both ends of the court, finishing with a fabulous 19 points and 10 rebounds on 7-for-10 floor shooting and continuing her astonishing run of grabbing steals by adding another superb seven to her tally for the season.

It was the magic of the 27-year-old and a devastating run during the final quarter which proved decisive, as Fenerbahce turned a precarious one-shot lead at 50-47 with just seven minutes remaining, into an emphatic victory off the back of a brilliant 14-0 burst.

It was a passage of play rounded off by Anastasiya Verameyenka, who also chose her former home court as the place to become only the fourth player in EuroLeague Women history to accumulate more than 150 blocked shots.

There had been little to separate both teams in a keenly contested first half, with Fenerbahce leading 39-30 and they continued holding the upper hand.

Nadezhda produced a strong fightback late in the third and early in the fourth, prior to the visitors' ruthless late surge.

Isabelle Yacoubou meanwhile loves playing on the road for Fenerbahce and again showed why by amassing 17 points from 67% floor shooting.

Natalia Anoikina had 13 points and nine rebounds for Nadezhda.

 

COACH QUOTES


Quotes: Nadezhda Orenburg vs. Fenerbahce

Fenerbahce Player Angel McCoughtry
"Nadezhda is one of the hardest teams and we always have very tough games with them. I think this was the top match but we were a real team tonight and thus we won."

Fenerbahce Head Coach Roberto Iniguez
"I am very satisfied with the game of my team tonight, we played very good defence tonight. We found keys to the game and played team defence. So, not only all five players made their job but they played good defence."

Nadezhda Player Anna Cruz
"The game wasn't an easy one. We tried our best, wanted to win but it wasn't enough tonight. We have a very good team and I keep my faith in it. We just need to continue to work."

Nadezhda Head Coach George Dikeoulakos
"First of all, my congratulations to Fenerbahce and I wish them to win EuroLeague Women and the national championship! Last games we won by almost 30 points difference but sometimes I wasn't satisfied with my team. However, I don't have any complaints tonight. I am proud of my team! Unfortunately, tonight we lost our weapon - Glory Johnson, she got an injury but this is not the only reason why we lost. Such teams as Fenerbahce, they punish their opponents for even the slightest loss of concentration. This is what happened tonight."
