|Hana Horakova was motivated against her former team|
Hana Horakova scored 17 points to lead Good Angels Kosice to a 79-57 road win over Frisco Brno to wrap up their Group C campaign in Round 1 of EuroLeague Women.
In her return to her long-time club the guard was five of six from the field, also contributing with three rebounds, two assists and three steals.
Kosice trailed only briefly in the opening period before taking control of the game and leading by double digits virtually all the way to the close as they secured a 9-5 record and at least third place in the group.
The visitors scored the final seven points of the game to underline their supremacy, with Kayla Pedersen completing a three-point play from the foul line before Helena Sverisdottir hit a jump-shot and Lucia Kupcikova finished things from the free-throw line.
The final 71 seconds of the game passed without a basket at either end, but the result had long since been decided.
Sverrisdottir had 12 points for Kosice and Anna Jurcenkova added 10.
Tereza Peckova led Brno with 13 points.
Good Angels Head Coach Stefan Svitek
"For both teams it was a game without motivation. Brno could play without stress, because they werre on the end of the table. Our team had problems with better performances and with shooting. We missed often the open oportunitty to score. The game was tough, we couldn´t make an advantage of more than 20 points. We were better in rebounds."
Frisco Brno Head Coach Jan Bobrovsky
"I am disappointed with our performance in the whole Euroleague. Our performance was poor. If the shooting is bad, you must fight in defence and offence. But in our performance was nothing. It was the same today. We prepared on this game very conscientiously. But we played good only in the first quarter."
Good Angels Kosice player Hana Horakova
"From my point of view the game was though. Brno played good the whole game. We had better rebounds and played more aggressive. Form my point of view the game was sentimental. I spent in this hall eleven very successfully seasons. Brno player with a sense of humor asked me before the game, if I knew, where the dressing room for the guests team was. I met with a lot of friends, and I am satisfied with the result."
Frisco Brno player Barbora Kasparkova
"We could win, but we made a lot of mistakes. We had a chance to turn around the game. But when we returned on the field very good pivot Vieru, we lost the chance. Our rivals were better in rebounds."
