Evanthia Maltsi finally found her shooting touch as CCC Polkowice sent Tarbes to tears

CCC Polkowice breathed life into their EuroLeague Women campaign on Wednesday and piled on the misery for Tarbes by beating the French team, 78-52.

Evina Maltsi had 17 points and seven rebounds for the Polish outfit, with Valeriya Musina contributing 16.

The Group B win was Polkowice's second in five games.

Tarbes, still without a victory in Europe this season, got 12 points from Paoline Salagnac.

The visitors only trailed 20-17 early in the second quarter after two baskets from Ana Cata-Chitiga when the hosts began to take a firm grip on proceedings.

Agnieszka Majewska drew a foul from Tarbes' Naura El Gargati and made two free-throws, and Megan Frazee followed with two jump shots for Polkowice.

Musina finished the spurt with two more from the charity stripe for a 28-17 lead.

The hosts put the result beyond doubt with a 7-0 run early in the second half for a 46-29 advantage.

In the spurt, Musina and Maltsi each buried a jump shot and Iva Perovanovic added a three-point play.

They ended up outscoring the visitors 13-6 in the frame.

Tarbes' defense disappeared in the fourth when they allowed Polkowice to put 28 points on the scoreboard for a winning margin of 26.

agressive enough. I would like to congratulate Polkowice."

"Wa are really happy. That is our second win in the EuroLeague. The last game in Sopron was not good, today everything looks better.
