GAME REPORT


Mondeville Finish On A High

Mondeville cruised to an easy 84-63 victory over TTT Riga in their final EuroLeague Women Group A game, but the chance of qualification for the last 16 had already been taken from them.

Pecs' win over Cras Basket Taranto made this a dead rubber, but Mondeville still went out on a high.

The hosts busted the game open early on, with Yacine Sene's jump-shot sparking a 16-2  run that made it 31-14.

Riga would rally early in the second half to put a scare into their hosts.

Kimberly Butler scored five straight points to make it 49-42, and after Aurelie Bonnan had made a pair of free throws for Mondeville, further baskets from Kristine Karklina and Shavonte Zellous brought the score back to 51-48.

But Mondeville were devastating from there on out, ending the third quarter on a 10-0 run and then using a 16-2 burst early in the fourth to kill the visitors off.

Kristen Sharp scored 15 to lead five Mondeville players in double figures as Lenae Williams and Aija Brumermane had 13 each, Valeriya Berezhynska 12 and Anne-Sophie Pagnier 10.

Zellous led Riga with 16 points while Butler had 15 and eight rebounds.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes USO Mondeville vs TTT Riga

Hervé Coudray, head coach USO Mondeville:
"I am disappointed about two games we lost this season: the game in Riga and the game against Pecs at home because we should have won those two games. At least we managed to end our EureoLeague Women season with our heads up and a win at home. Even if the game was meaningless because of Pec's win, it's good for our self-confidence."

Touty Gandega, USO Mondeville:
"It was a good game and a good performance, even if we were distracted in the third quarter. We regret that we lost the game in Riga but to play in EuroLeague Women still was a good experience. It was a good win even if we are eliminated - now we have to focus on the French league."

Aigars Nerips, head coach TTT Riga:
"Congratulations to Mondeville. They were more agressive under the basket. They had 17 free throws and in the first half a lot of fast breaks. Good win."

Shavonte Zellous, TTT Riga:
"It was a great game. Congratulations for their performance."
