GAME REPORT


Spartak Roll On With Fener Demolition

Spartak Region Moscow once again demonstrated their superiority in Group D of the EuroLeague Women as they ripped apart second-placed Fenerbahce 103-59 to remain unbeaten.

Six players scored in double figures and the team shot a collective 41 of 78 (52.5%) from the field while outrebounding Fener 47-33.

They wasted little time in taking control of the game, starting on a 15-2 run, and ending the first quarter up 25-14 thanks to a three-point play from Sylvia Fowles.

Fener briefly got the deficit under 10 again when Nevriye Yilmaz made a jump-shot two and a half minutes into the second quarter to make it 31-22, but Spartak responded with a 9-2 run and just kept pulling away thereafter.

Diana Taurasi finished with 20 points, while Janel McCarville had 18 on eight of 10 shooting from the field.

Fowles and Anete Jekabsone-Zogota had 13 each, while Marina Karpurina and Kelli Miller chipped in with 10 apiece.

Fener could not find their shooting touch against Spartak's defence, and were held to a 18 of 51 (35.2%) inside the arc.

Yilmaz finished with 15 points, while Nicole Powell scored 14 and Penny Taylor had 11.

Quotes Spartak Moscow Region vs. Fenerbahce

Spartak Moscow Region - Vidnoje head coach Pokey Chatman:
"we came out strong on both ends of the court and I am happy to say that all my players offered a great effort to this important win versus a very good team. It is good to have such a momentum a few days before our game versus the reigning Russian Champions."

Janel McCarville, Spartak power forward:
I am happy for not only having a good day but also by the fact our team played well a few days before our game versus last year's Russian Superleague Champions Ekaterinburg.

Fenerbache head coach Haydar Kemal Ates:
Spartak was very powerful and played very well but the truth is that we did not play good defense. Spartak had a great shooting day.
