UMMC Ekaterinburg got rid of the bad taste of their fourth-quarter collapse against Ros Casares last week with a convincing home triumph over Uni Seat Györ.

Algirdas Paulauskas' side took command of the EuroLeague Women Group A clash midway through the first quarter against the visitors from Hungary and claimed a 97-60 victory.

Candace Parker led the scoring parade with 19 points for UMMC.

Seven players in all reached double digits in points for Ekaterinburg.

The hosts led 10-8 with 5:41 remaining in the opening frame when they landed blows that Györ would not recover from.

Olga Arteshina connected from long range to start a 21-8 run to end the first quarter.

Several UMMC players scored in that decisive spurt.

To remove any hope of a Uni Seat comeback, Ekaterinburg reeled off the first 13 points of the second quarter for a 44-16 lead with 5:52 to go in the period.

By half-time, the lead was 58-29 and three-quarter time, it was 76-52.

The Russian team coasted to victory over the last 10 minutes to improve to 5-2 in Group A and drop Györ to 1-6.
