In the second quarter Pays d'Aix Basket 13 finally managed to find their rhythm and after a 3-pointer by Magali Lacroix cut the deficit to 4 points (23-19). Shortly after Diana Goustilina entered the court for Ekaterinburg and her steal led to a 3-pointer by De Lisha Milton to extend the lead again to 8 points (32-24).

Shortly before the end of the first half it was Anna Arkhipova to seal the 35-29 halftime lead with another 3-pointer.

After the break Pays d'Aix Basket step by step reduced the deficit. With only 3 minutes left in the third quarter the score was 44-44 and by the end of the third, Pays d'Aix had their first lead in the game (46-48).

At the beginning of the last quarter it was Natalia Williams and Milton who carried their team. UMMC took again the lead, 50-48 after 2 minutes.

The game became very intense now and both teams struggled offensively – both teams didn't score for 2 minutes. But this should not remain the longest scoreless period...

With 5 minutes left in the ballgame UMMC led 55-50 – and this was also the final result as both teams went scoreless during the last 5 minutes!

Game MVP: Svetlana Abrosimova (UMMC).
