Nineteen points and 21 rebounds from Dewanna Bonner lifted Frisco Sika Brno to an 83-68 win over Tarbes GB in Group D of the EuroLeague Women.
Hana Horakova added 16 and Eva Viteckova 11 but it was Bonner who dominated in a win that lifts Brno into second place behind Spartak Moscow Region.
After a close opening, Viteckova's jump-shot early in the second quarter sparked a 12-3 run that gave Brno a little breathing room.
After taking a 10-point advantage, 48-38, into the locker rooms, they continued to chip away in the third quarter, with Jelena Skerovic's three-pointer late in the period putting them on top 65-48.
Tarbes would never again get within single figures.
Tarbes wasted 29 points from Charde Houston, while Frida Eldebrink had 13 and Isabelle Yacoubou-Dehoui added 12.
Frisco Sika Brno head Coach Jan Borbovsky:
"The game wasn´t easy. Tarbes played from the beginning very unpleasant zone pressing. We couldn´t this defense overtake. Our players knew, how to play against this tactic but they made mistakes. We didn´t play good in defense. We have to improve it in new year."
Frisco Sika Brno player Eva Viteckova:
"We didn´t play excellent, but important is the victory. We had problems with defense against shooter Houston."
Tarbes Gespe Bigore head coach Francois Gomez:
"It is very difficult to play against Brno, one of the best team Europe. Today we could have done a miracle. But we missed to much baskets and easy points, we made mistakes in defense and rebounds."
