MiZo Pécs roll to victory over Faenza

17 January 2008

MiZo Pecs 2010 climbed back into second place in Group D after beating Germano Zama Faenza 82-71 on Thursday in the EuroLeague Women.

Dalma Ivanyi and Co improved to 6-3 to leapfrog Dynamo Moscow (5-4) in the standings with one group game remaining.

Finishing second to Ros Casares is vital as that would ensure home court advantage in the Eighth Finals.

Hungarian point guard Zsofia Fegyverneky poured in 15 points for Pecs while Ivanyi and Brazilian center Graziene Coelho added 12 apiece.

Pecs led 43-40 at half-time and went on an 11-2 run at the start of the third quarter to take command, with Coelho scoring six points in that surge.

Faenza trailed 62-48 going into the final stanza but failed to find the strength to get back in the game and clinch a crucial away win.

The outcome leaves the Italian outfit 2-7.

Pecs made just three of 13 (23%) from long range but were 21 of 37 (56.7%) from inside the arc.

Serbian point guard Marija Eric had a game-high 25 points in defeat.
