Evanthia Maltsi had 31 points and Lindsay Whalen 24 as ZVVZ USK Prague topped MKB Euroleasing 98-75 in a scoring-fest in the Czech capital.
Maltsi made four of seven (57.1%) from three-point range and six of 11 (54.5%) from two-point range in an outstanding performance, while Whalen was even more efficient, making three of five (60%) from long-range and five of nine (55.5%) from around the basket.
Marketa Bednarova also scored in double figures with 12 points.
But despite the offensive fireworks, the key to the game for Prague was on defence, where 30 of their 38 rebounds came to restrict MKB's opportunities.
Even so, Dora Horti got 21 points for the visitors, and Amber Holt added 18 while Katalin Honti had 12.
Prague improve to 3-2 in Group C, while MKB slip to 2-3.
Lubor Blažek (ZVVZ USK Prague Head Coach):
"We knew that we want, need and have to win this home game. It was just neccessary. Since the first minute the team played responsibly, the girls started fighting in the very beginning. It may look as if we won thanks to zone defence, but I have to say that the main reason of today´s victory was the individual approach of every single player on court. I could praise indviduals, but this was a team victory."

"We had great tactical preparation for this game, we knew what to expect from Sopron. But our coaches always do such scouting for us. This time I feel we all were more passionate and concentrated about the game. We did all we had to do and what was expected from us. Plus, we knew Milovanovic was injured and that it will be mentally difficult for Sopron. We have three difficult games ahead of us now so today´s victory is very important for team spirit."
Norbert Szekely (MKB Eurloasing Head Coach)
"It is very hard for me to speak about this game. There was a very big differences between the two teams - physical and mentally as well. We tried everything but we just could not do better than this today. Now we have to forget about this lost game and concentrate for the Hungarian league, we have difficult game against Pecs this weekend. Milovanovic is an important player for us and now when she is injured and we are missing two other players, it is just hard time for our team. I think USK is a very good team with chances to proceed to Final four."
Dora Horti (#10 MKB Euroleasing)
"I do not have any special comments about this game. We just need to show in following games that we are able to play well like in previous season."
