GAME REPORT


Prague Extend Winning Streak In Style

The travel sickness of Galatasaray Medical Park continued in Group C of EuroLeague Women.

The Turkish club were again demolished on the road after slumping to an 84-56 defeat at USK Prague who are now on a roll after a third straight win.

Again it was the hot hand of EuroLeague Women veteran Eva Viteckova that propelled the Czech side to success with the shooter converting four of five attempts from the arc to finish with 25 points while fellow veteran Delisha Milton-Jones racked up a double-double.

While Galatasaray struggled to keep pace with their opponents after the opening exchanges, things went from bad to worse in the second half.

After six minutes of the game the visitors trailed by only two points at 14-12 but then allowed USK Prague to score 12 of the last 14 points in the quarter.

It was all downhill for Galatasaray after that and their shortcomings at both ends of the floor were brutally exposed by a rampant home side who really turned on the style.

So much so that Galatasaray only managed a paltry 7 points in the final seven minutes of the game while Prague just kept their foot on the gas right until the final buzzer.

Lindsay Whalen chipped in with 16 points and 6 rebounds for the home team while for the disappointing losing team only Sylvia Fowles could hold her head high with 23 points and 9 rebounds.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes ZVVZ USK PRAGUE vs. GALATASARAY MEDICAL PARK

Galatasaray MP head coach Ceyhyn Yildizoglu:
"USK Prague played really well. Before the game we knew that ZVVZ USK plays fast offense but we couldn´t stop them. We had the opportunity to play with a good team today. After this game we play in Tarbes and I hope we will be ready."

Galatasaray player Yasemen Saylar:
"As the coach said, we knew that ZVVZ USK plays fast and we couldnt stop them. We didnt deserve this result, we should play better but now we have to focus on Tarbes."

USK Prague head coach Lubor Blažek:
"We played 40 mins of really well concentrated game, there were some mistakes but we succeeded to keep our heads up while dribbling and to go forward which was a major thing in this game. We knew that Galatasaray never puts head down, in other games they were loosing by 20points and than they reduced it by 8 or 10. I am glad we didnt let them do this. Our offense was really well done."

USK Prague player Lindsay Whalen:
"We knew that this was really important game as we play at home. Galatasaray has lots of good players and I think we just were really well prepared for this game. Everyone put full effort, we rebounded well and played good defense."
