Ros Complete Sweep Of ZVVZ In Prague

05.02.2010

Ros Casares became the first team to book their place in the last eight of Euroleague Women as they swept ZVVZ USK Prague after securing an 85-74 success in the Czech capital.

Veteran DeLisha Milton led the way with 18 points and six rebounds as the all round strength and depth of the Spanish giants proved a big factor.

It was far from a vintage display by the Valencia based club but their usual work-rate and experience left USK Prague always playing catch-up. The visitors dominated from tip to buzzer after storming into an early 18-4 lead.

While Prague tried to keep pace, they found themselves 24-12 behind after the first ten minutes of action. In a more evenly contested second period, Prague were more effective but still found themselves 41-28 behind at the break.

That didn't deter the home team and to their credit, they worked hard to claw their way back and managed to get within 8 points with just under four minutes to go after a score by Sandra Le Drean.

However Ros Casares regained control down the stretch to ease their way into the quarter-finals.

While Prague finished with four players in double-figures, Eurobasket Women MVP Evina Maltsi and the in-form Lindsay Whalen were well shackled by the Ros Casares defence and neither could produce the kind of magical display their team so desperately needed.
