Petra Beats Dad

By Doug Booth, PA International

Petra Ujhelyi won a clear first-match advantage over her father Gabor on Wednesday when Anda Ramat-Hasharon thrashed Szeviep Szeged of Hungary 86-62 in the FIBA Europe Cup Women Pan-European play-offs.

And Petra does not believe the Hungarian champions, even with her father once again coaching, can turn the tables in the return match in Szeged on March 3.

"My father is a good loser. All he said to me after the loss was that his team did not play too smart," she said to PA International.

Centre Chasity Melvin top-scored for the winners with 23 points and 10 rebounds while fellow American Candace Futrell hit 21 points.

Ines Ajanovic, Petra's former team-mate at the University of South Carolina at Columbia, had 13 points and Angela Delmis hit 12 for Szeviep Szeged.
