BC Moscow Run Riot Against Panionios

31 January 2008
BC Moscow outscored Panionios in Greece 21-7 in the second quarter and used that run as a platform for an 81-58 victory in the first leg of their EuroCup Women Eighth Finals Tie.

The Russians led 20-19 at the end of the first quarter but then turned on the style, all but sealing their place in the next stage of the competition.

It will take a monumental effort from Panionios to claw back the 23-point deficit.

The chief destroyer for Moscow was Plenette Michelle Pierson, who had 25 points.

Monique Currie was also in good form, pouring in 21.

Extrugasa defeated Electra Ramat-Hasharon 60-54 in the last game to finish on Thursday, but they might have had a more convincing victory were it not for the fighting spirit of the Israeli team.

The Spanish side had a 10-point lead at the start of the fourth quarter but will now have to go to Israel trying to protect it in what is a very intriguing second leg scheduled for February 7.

Agne Ciudariene had 15 points in the victory, while Rada Vidovic scored 17 and grabbed 10 rebounds in defeat.
