Bourges Remain Undefeated With Comeback Win


Evanthia Maltsi nailed a three-pointer with three seconds remaining to earn Bourges a 65-62 comeback win over Halcon Avenida, maintaining her side's unbeaten EuroLeague Women Group B record in the process.

Down 62-58 with 2:44 remaining in the match, the hosts looked to be down and out, but they managed to tie the game at 62-62 going into the final seconds.

Greece international Maltsi then administered the killer blow, sinking a long-ranger from downtown to secure her team the victory and finish with a personal haul of 24 points.

It was a one-woman show for Bourges, who now have a 6-0 record at the top of the group.

Maltsi, a newcomer at Bourges this season, was the only player from the home side to make it into double figures - Vicky Hall and Celine Dumerc added eight points apiece.

Nicole Powell (21 points and five rebounds) and Nicole Ohlde (18 points and six rebounds) were their stand-out performers.

The Spaniards now have a 2-4 record.
