Dexia missed opportunities at the beginning of the game and couldn't score (2 points after 5 minutes). The Lithuanian defense made it difficult for the Belgian team to find any way to the basket whereas Jurgita Streimikyte piloted to her team to a 4-14 lead.

Fortunately for Namur, Anna Wielebnowska was able to reply for the home side and the score stood at 13-20 after the first period. The second quarter followed in much the same way as the first with Streimikyte leading the way to a 28-42 Lithuanian lead before the half time.

Dexia Namur was determined to put on a good show for the home crowd and came out fighting after the break. Thanks to Szymanska and Volnaya, the home team was able to pull back to 47-54 and 49-55 after 30 minutes.

The locals even narrowed the gap to 57-60, 62-65 and even 65-67 but still the Dexia players were not able to take complete control and Vilnius held on for the victory and the Quarter-Fianl spot.
