Fenerbahce had sneaked Game One 69-67 on Tuesday, but the Spanish team hit back on Friday with a pair of three-pointers from Milton helping Ros Casares establish a 29-12 lead at the end of the first quarter.

A 9-0 run early in the second period further stretched that advantage by half-time  to 46-25, before Erika De Souza and Elisa Aguilar helped add to Fenerbahce's woes in the final 20 minutes as Ros Casares romped to a convincing win.

Milton led all scorers with 20 points for the hosts, with De Souza adding 16 and 14 rebounds.

Aguilar also poured in 14 points for the winners, while Cappie Pondexter was the only Fenerbahce player to finish in double figures with 14.

The teams will now return to Istanbul for the decider next Wednesday to determine who will progress to the Final Four.
