Lietuvos were undefeated at home going into the contest, but Dynamo proved too strong for the Lithuanian champions, edging the contest 73-77.

After a slow start (they trailed 11-3 in the 5th minute), Dynamo came back to finish the quarter 13-19. Lietuvos fought back in the second quarter and reduced Dynamo's lead to 2 points, 36-38, at halftime.

Lietuvos were not quite ready to capitulate victory and they fought back in the fourth. They were able to get within 2 points on 3 separate occasions, but Mwadi Mabiki's final minute free throws (she made 4/4) settled the game in Dynamo's favour.

Natalia Vodopyanova led Dynamo with 22 points and 15 rebounds. Elena Baranova added 9 rebounds for Dynamo, who grabbed a total of 21 offensive boards.

Katie Douglas top scored for Lietuvos telekomas with 23 points.
