Kosice Pull Away From Riga In Second Half


Good Angels Kosice stormed to a 70-48 win over TTT Riga in EuroLeague Women Group A.

With a 49-32 advantage on the boards and Charde Houston and Candice Dupree wreaking havoc as usual, the Slovakian giants improved to 5-3 and dropped the Latvian outfit to 1-7.

Dupree finished with 15 points and 13 rebounds and Houston had 19 points and nine boards.

Riga did a good job of hanging around in the first half and went to the break facing a 33-29 deficit.

Houston got the ball rolling for Good Angels after the restart, hitting a shot from the arc on a fast break and then burying a jumper.

Zuzana Zirkova, who also had an encouraging performance for Good Angels with 16 points, four assists and six rebounds, drove a nail in the Riga coffin when she made a three-pointer midway through the third quarter for a 45-31 lead.

Another three by the Slovakia international later in the period extended the advantage to 50-31.

Good Angels pulled away for a convincing win.
