Zanze Leads Besiktas To Victory

Korane Zanze racked up 18 points and 16 rebounds to power Besiktas Cola Turka to a 91-51 thrashing of BC Zeljeznicar on Tuesday to improve their Group A record to 2-0.

The 34-year-old scored five points as her side stormed to a 13-4 lead midway through the first quarter.

The Turkish team out-shot and out-rebounded their hosts who were forced to rely on free shots for most of their points.

Thirteen of the Bosnian champions' baskets were from the charity stripe with the remainder made up mainly of two-point shots and two three-pointers.

Zanze made eight of her side's 30 two-pointers and she was the key as Besiktas raced to a 43-24 advantage at the end of the second quarter.

American Stacey Lovelace-Tolbert pitched in with 25 points, 10 of which were scored in a stunning third-quarter performance as she shot her side to a 66-37 lead going into the final period.

Compatriot Vanessa Hayden-Johnson also had a stellar game which saw her notch 14 points and 11 rebounds.

Aleksandra Music was a bright light in an otherwise poor Zeljeznicar side.

The 31-year-old scored 14 points and got five of her side's paltry 29 rebounds.
