GAME REPORT


Lyttle Leads Avenida Into Quarters

4. Zsófia Fegyverneky (Pécs 2010)
Zsófia Fegyverneky's efforts were not enough for brave Pécs
Sancho Lyttle poured in 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as Halcon Avenida advanced to the quarter-finals of the EuroLeague Women with a 73-66 road win over Pecs 2010.

Avenida began to pull away midway through the fourth quarter after a close battle.

Dalma Ivanyi's free throws had Pecs down by one, 58-57, but Erika De Souza's lay-up was followed by a Lyttle jump-shot and another basket from Alba Torrens, stretching the lead to seven, 64-57.

Alexandria Quigley replied with a three-pointer for Pecs, and the gap was back to one, 64-63, with another long-ranger from Nora Nagy.

But Avenida composed themselves, and Silvia Dominguez made a lay-up, drawing a foul in the process and completing the three-point play from the line.

Kelsey Griffin missed for Pecs and Lyttle made two from the line to make it 69-63 with 49 seconds left.

Marta Xargay added four more from the line to have Avenida up by double figures, 73-63 in the final seconds before Krisztina Raksanyi sank a late three-pointer for the hosts.

De Souza had 11 points and 10 rebounds for Avenida, while Xargay finished with 13 points.

Quigley did all she could in the Pecs cause, pouring in 23 points, while Griffin had 14 points and 11 rebounds.
