Ivana Matovic takes 2 free throws
The EuroLeague Women teams playing in Prague produced a very balanced game today; both teams were better at defense than at offence. Bourges scored 10 more points than USK Blex in the first quarter and were able to keep this advantage right through until the end of the game.

Although the Czech team managed to decrease the their opponents' lead several times, they failed to score from the easiest positions in the decisive moments. This situation repeated itself again in the last quarter as USK decreased the advantage of the French team down to 8 points five minutes before the end of the game. The team from Prague got the ball and went for a break, however, they didn’t score and Alicia Poto used the following counterattack for returning peace to the French team. Bourges was able to control the game at the end of the match and was also add few more points to the gap.

MVP of the game: Ivana Matovic (USK Blex KV Praha)

Quotes USK Blex KV Praha - Bourges Basket

Ivan Benes (USK Blex Praha coach): "It was an even game, we weren’t good at shooting and we made more mistakes than the opponents. This decided the final score.”

Pierre Vincent (Bourges Basket coach): “We are happy we won, especially because we had difficulties to score. It is difficult to win a game if you can’t hit.”
