EuroLeague Women

Bourges exploded for 28 fourth-quarter points and claimed a decisive EuroLeague Women Group D victory at Gorzow in Poland on Wednesday.

The French walked off the court in Poland with an 86-66 triumph - their fourth in six games.

Bourges ace Catherine Joens had a season-high 26 points, which included a six-of-eight shooting rampage from long range.

Gorzow, who led 40-30 late in the first half but couldn't press home the advantage, slipped to 2-4.

The game was tied at 51-51 when Bourges took the lead for good.

Ilona Burgrová scored four straight points on a jumper and two free-throws and Endene Miyem added a shot from the charity stripe and a jump shot to make it 58-51.

Gorzow cut the deficit to 58-55 early in the fourth but then went off the rails as Bourges outscored them 28-13 in the frame.

Yelena Leuchanka finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds for Gorzow.
