Schio did manage to keep their noses in front heading into the second half at 43-40 but within two minutes they had lost their lead and would never get it back. In fact it was to prove to be a horrific third quarter for the home team.
They managed a paltry six points and that effectively killed off their hopes of making a big statement by beating last seasons EuroLeague Women runners-up.
As a consequence of their third quarter offensive shortcomings, they trailed 62-49 heading into the last ten minutes and could make no impression as Ros Casares secured the win with relative ease.
Janel McCarville finished with 14 points, 10 rebounds and an impressive 3 blocked shots for Schio.
