Tarbes Collapse Against Classy Nadezhda


Nadezhda turned on the style in the fourth quarter and clinched a 65-60 victory at Tarbes GB in France.

The visitors from Orenburg, who now have Katie Douglas in their line-up, got 17 points from the 32-year-old forward but it was Nadezhda's Anastasiya Verameyenka who led all scorers in the EuroLeague Women Group B game with 18.

A pair of free-throws by Ana Cata-Chitiga gave the hosts a 56-51 lead with 4:45 to go but Nadezhda dug deep and got a Rebbekah Brunson jumper to fall before Verameyenka went in for a lay-up.

A Brunson free-throw then knotted the contest at 56-56 with 4:08 to go.

Douglas made two free-throws to tie the game at 58-58 and she then drilled a three-ball with 1:24 left to make it a three-point advantage.

A Naura El Gargati lay-up gave Tarbes hope and left them trailing by a single point, but Elena Danilochkina's two free-throws and a Pauline Krawczyk turnover for Tarbes allowed Nadezhda to win in thrilling fashion for the second week in a row.

In their previous game at Sopron, Aleksasndr Kovalev's side won with a three-pointer late in overtime by Danilochkina.

Brunson, who played with Douglas last season at Ros Casares, had a game-high 11 rebounds to go with her 12 points. 

Tarbes are now 0-3.
