No Drama As Greeks Beat Dynamo Moscow To Advance

25 February 2010

Sony Athinaikos stormed into the last four of the EuroCup Women with a 78-66 victory at Dynamo Moscow.

George Dikeoulakos' team rolled to an 84-60 win in the first leg and they were never in trouble on Thursday in wrapping up a 36-point aggregate triumph.

Greece international point guard Dimitra Kalentzou tore about the Russian team with 27 points and seven assists while Lithuanian Gintare Petronyte scored 20 and corralled a game-high 13 rebounds.

Sony Athinaikos will now face another Russian team, Dynamo Kursk, in the Semi-Finals.

Kursk came back from a huge first-leg deficit to beat Municipal Targoviste on Wednesday.

Athinaikos out-rebounded Dynamo Moscow 43-32.

The Greek outfit did much of its damage at the free-throw line, making 19 of 23 attempts.

Progression was all but assured by the end of the opening quarter as Athinaikos had a 30-12 stranglehold on proceedings.

They cruised the rest of the way.

Candice Wiggins had to leave the first game back in Athens last week with an injury but she recovered and played almost 16 minutes in Moscow.

Dynamo Moscow's season in the competition came to a disappointing conclusion.

Marina Kuzina led the team with 28 points.
