Nadezhda Continue Revival

EuroLeague Women

35. Cheryl Ford (Frisco Sika Brno), 31. Tina Charles (Nadezhda)
Tina Charles was once again instrumental for Nadezhda, with 17 points and 14 rebounds

Before last week's game at Ros Casares, Nadezhda Orenburg looked like a team that was set for an early exit from the EuroLeague Women.

After winning in Spain, and following that up with a 75-59 home victory over Frisco Sika Brno, anything looks possible for Vladimir Koloskov's side.

Team USA's Tina Charles turned in another world class performance with 17 points and 14 rebounds as Nadezhda won 75-59 at home over Brno.

The Russian club won for the third time this season and stayed strengthened its bid to play in the next phase of the competition, and they also avenged a setback at Brno earlier in the campaign.

Jan Bobrovsky's Czechs led 21-20 early in the second quarter when the wheels came off.

Nadezhda's Anastasiya Verameyenka hit a jump shot - her only attempt from the floor in the game - and Elena Baranova followed with a three-ball.

Baranova is one of the all-time Russian greats who has been playing a more important role for the club in recent games.

The hosts would end up finishing the first half by outscoring the visitors 17-5 for a 38-25 lead.

Brno never recovered.

Nadezhda kept the pressure on in the third quarter and stretched the lead to 60-39 and cruised to victory - their third in seven games.

Brno, who got 19 points from Frida Eldebrink, slumped to 1-6.
