GAME REPORT


ZVVZ Prague Bow Out With Win Over Jolly JBS

ZVVZ Prague ended their EuroLeague Women on a winning note after beating Jolly JBS Sibenik 69-59 in a battle of teams that had no chance of advancing to the eighth-finals.

Both Prague and Jolly JBS finished with 3-7 records in Group C.

Michala Hartigová and Lindsay Whalen each finished with 15 points and Michaela Feranciková had 14 for Prague, who took the lead for good less than two minutes into the game.

Jolly JBS, playing away from home, closed the gap to 15-13 but a Hartigová three-all provided the hosts with a five-point lead at the end of the first quarter.

Twice in the second quarter, Prague opened up leads of nine but they had a 34-29 advantage at the break as Sibenik kept the game close.

But they would never seriously threaten the home side the rest of the way, with Prague leading by at least five points for the remainder of the game.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes ZVVZ Prague vs. Jolly JBS Sibenik

Lubor Blazek, coach ZVVZ Prague:

"We didn't play as well as we expected. Sibenik is very strong when visiting. It was a nervous game and we made mistakes in situations, where we thought we could break them. It's surprising, that we weren't able to score from fast-breaks or in power play situations. Despite all this I'm glad that we won, but it's pitty we didn't make it to the play-offs."

Stipe Bralic, coach Jolly JBS Sibenik:

"It was a well-earned victory, the stronger team won. Especially since they had the taller players."

Michaela Ferancikova, player ZVVZ Prague:

"We regret that we didn't move ahead to the play-offs, it was one the season's goals. At the end we won three games, but it's not enough for proceeding."
