GAME REPORT


De Mondt Trey Gives Avenida Win Over Nadezhda

Anke De Mondt buried a three-pointer with seven seconds remaining to lift Halcon Avenida to a 77-74 win over EuroLeague Women newcomers Nadezhda.

Beaten in overtime at home on their debut in the competition last week, Nadezhda had a chance to pull level two seconds from the end but Belarus international Anastasiya Veremeenko missed from behind the arc.

Salamanca club Avenida improved to 1-1 with the Group A triumph.

The winners got 21 points from Le'Coe Louise Willingham while Nadezhda wasted a game-high 25 from Olga Ovcharenko.

A De Mondt jumper had given Avenida a 74-67 lead with 1:22 remaining, only for Shameka de Lynn Christon to spark a 7-0 run with a three-ball and two free throws.

Begona Garcia tied the game at 74-74 with a made jump shot 11 seconds from the end only for De Mondt to steal the headlines with the game-winner.

Christon had 18 points while Veremeenko scored eight and pulled down nine rebounds.

 

COACH QUOTES


Quotes Halcon Avenida vs. Nadezhda

J I. Hernandez, coach Halcon Avenida:

"Strange feeling because he could have scored an easier win.. We have to be focused for the whole game in the future and be careful with turnovers. It´s very important to win at home but maybe we need to win some games away if we want to go through to the  next round."

Anke De Mondt, player Halcon Avenida:
 
"[My last shot] was a very important shot because it won us the game. EuroLeague Women is a very difficult competition and we have to play hard every game."

Alexander Vlasov, coach Nadezhda:

"Today we played against Halcon Avendia and their supporters. It´s the first time we play in EuroLeague Women and we need more experience and luck in the future."

Shameka De Lynn Christon, player Nadezhda:

"We fought until the end of the game. It is hard  to lose here but we ´ll try to improve in the next games."
