A week is a long time in basketball and VICI Aistes were reminded of that on Wednesday as ZVVZ USK Prague blew them out in their EuroLeague Women Group A meeting.

After winning with a buzzer-beating three-ball from Rima Valentiene last week in Kaunas against Ros Casares, the Lithuanians hit the road and fell 98-60 at Prague.

Lubor Blazek's team won for the sixth time in 10 games while VICI went down for the eighth time this season.

Prague trailed only briefly, in the early minutes of the game.

Behind 8-4, the hosts got baskets from Ticha Penicheiro, Eva Viteckova and Ilona Burgrova.

After Tatsiana Likhtarovich knotted the game at 10-10 with a score for the visitors, Viteckova and Likhtarovich traded three-pointers.

Katerina Elhotova followed with a shot from the arc to make it 16-13 for Prague.

The three-ball ignited a 12-1 run that put the home side in front to stay.

They led 31-19 at the end of the first quarter, 53-35 at half-time and 77-42 with 10 minutes to play.

Viteckova finished with a game-high 19 points with four of her teammates also hitting double figures.

Amanda Kemezys led VICI Aistes with 18 points.
