GAME REPORT

01.12.2004
MKB Euroleasing 67 vs. TS Wisla Can-Pack 68

Polish side TS Wisla pulled off an upset tonight in Sopron. The EuroLeague Women rookies defeated Sopron in a close contest and got their competition hopes back on track after consecutive losses to Brno and Valenciennes.

Shannon Johnson and Tangela Smith sparked a 4th quarter comeback for Wisla which saw them overcome an 8-point deficit and take the game.

It was Sopron who were able to control the majority of the contest. European Championship MVP Lucie Blahuskova is showing some of the form which so impressed in 2003 and her scoring (19 points) allowed Sopron to maintain the lead.

But the decisive period proved to be the last 6 minutes when Smith and Johnson, an Olympic gold medallist, were unstoppable for Wisla.

Sopron's final chance of the contest came in the final 3 seconds, when down by 3-points, 21-year old center Ivana Matovic found herself on the free throw line. She made the first and tried to intetionally miss the second to give her team another chance to score. But she misjudged her shot and it went in, ending Sopron's chances.

COACH QUOTES

Quotes MKB Euroleasing vs. TS Wisla Can-Pack

Natalia Hejkova (Coach of Sopron):

Congratulations to Krakow! What can I say after a game lost by 1 point? Unbelieveable, but we were on the top last week, with the win against Brno and this evening we were in hell. We played very nervously, played bad defense, and without any brain. I am very disappointed.

Arkadiusz Koniecki (Coach of Wisla Krakow):

It was a really good game, our defense was the key in this win. Congratulations to Sopron too, they played good also. We made a great defense. Sopron has a tall, very good team. I am very proud that we were able to win against them. We played with one point guard, because Skerovic was ill but Shannon played very well and helped a lot to win this game.

Shannon Johnson (MVP): I played a lot of times against Hungarian teams. They have very good teams. I was here 3 years ago with Valencia, but we lost. Im very happy that we could win in Sopron, against this strong team. It was my first succes in Hungary. And im happy, that everybody from our team played a good game tonight.
