19.12.2007

Gambrinus Brno completed an emphatic double over US Valenciennes Olympic with an 86-62 win which kept them in pole position in EuroLeague Women Group C.

Wednesday's home victory, in which Petra Kulichova stole the show with 15 points and six rebounds, was more convincing than the Czech side's 74-55 win over UVSO just over a month ago.

Hana Machova weighed in with 14 points as Brno improved to a 6-1 record, while USVO (3-4) had Nicole Ohlde (17 points) to thank for keeping the score respectable.

The game was all but over by the end of the first quarter. A 10-0 run towards the end of the period made it 28-11 to the hosts and a Zuzana Zirkova three-pointer on the buzzer helped Brno to a 31-12 lead.

By the half-time hooter, Brno were shooting at 72.7% (16/22) from the field and had built up a 43-16 advantage.

They managed to maintain the gap around the 20-25 mark, with Ohlde the only USVO player providing any resistance.

Brno started to spread the scoring around and by end of the third period (70-47), five players had scored double figures.

In the fourth, the home side had a game-high 28-point margin (75-47) as they eased home.
