GAME REPORT


No Way Past Avenida For MiZo Pecs

MiZo Pecs 2010 put a late scare into Halcon Avenida but eventually went down 70-63 in their Group B EuroLeague Women clash.

Avenida were looking comfortable at 66-54 with 4:12 to go, but Alexandria Quigley hit a three-pointer for the visitors that sparked a 7-0 run, cutting the gap to 66-61 as Dalma Ivanyi hit a jump-shot with 1:52 to go.

Le'Coe Willingham's free-throws for Avenida stretched the lead back to seven, but Ohlde then hit a jumper with 50 seconds to go to make it 68-63.

After a Willingham turnover, Quigley missed a three-pointer, and Ivanyi fouled Silvia Dominguez to send the Avenida guard to the line.

She split her free throws, but the MiZo challenge suffered another major blow when Quigley committed another turnover and Dominguez again split a pair from the line, stretching the lead to 70-63 with 12 seconds left.

Willingham led Avenida with 19 points, while Sancho Lyttle had 14 and 15 rebounds.

Olexandra Gorbunova added 11 points and Alba Torrens 10.
