Alba Torrens and Erika De Souza led Halcon Avenida to a comfortable 87-70 win over Wisla Can-Pack in Game One of their EuroLeague Women quarter-final tie.
Torrens scored 19 points and De Souza added 17 and eight rebounds to lead them to a comfortable win.
Avenida built a big lead early in the second quarter and never looked in trouble thereafter.
Having been down 23-21, Torrens tied it with a jump-shot, sparking a 13-0 run that was capped by Belinda Snell's three-pointer that gave them a 36-23 lead.
Wisla could not get close again as Avenida did an effective job of holding them at arm's length.
Anke De Mondt also made double figures for Avenida with 14 points while Sancho Lyttle had 12.
Erin Phillips led Wisla with 15 points, Ewelina Kobryn added 13, Nicole Powell 12 and Yelena Leuchanka 11.
Wisla Can-Pack Head Coach Jose Hernandez:
"We started pretty well, controling the rebound wich was one of the keys against this Avenida team, but the 2nd foul called on Leuchanka hurt us a lot and that, added to Avenida's accuracy in the 2nd quarter made us lose hope and our team is not mentally tough enough to overcome this kind of ambience. The difference is not important. We have a game on Friday where if we win we tie the series, so it is not a matter of difference but of making things right at home"
Halcon Avenida Head Coach Coach Lucas Mondelo:
"The team got to this game in a great moment and feeling good with ourselves. This team when the players feel good and are focused is very difficult to beat. You can always improve and we have to improve to get in a better position to the next game but we played a great game today and we have to enjoy it tonight and prepare for the next game"
