Three-pointers Seal ESB Lille Win Over MKB Euroleasing


ESB Lille Metropole beat MKB Euroleasing Sopron on Wednesday for their second victory this season in the EuroLeague Women to keep their faint hopes of reaching the play-offs alive.

Abdou N'dyaye's team got 15 points, seven assists and five rebounds from Ljubica Drljaca and won 61-55 over the Hungarians to improve to 2-6 in Group B.

Geraldine Robert had 17 to lead the French team while Jelena Milovanovic scored 16 for MKB (4-4).

The three-point shooting statistics were probably the most telling in the game.

MKB missed all 10 of their attempts from behind the arc while Lille Metropole were seven of 17 (41.2%).

Jolene Anderson scored all nine of her points from behind the arc, hitting three of six.

One of those was a go-ahead three with 2:16 left in the contest to snap a 53-53 tie.

Brazilian Iziane followed with a three for Lille Metropole before Drljaca nailed a jumper for an eight-point advantage.

Milovanovic's lay-up inside the last minute accounted for the final score.
