Penny Taylor took her points haul to 10 when she answered with two straight jumpers for Fener.

The run continued as Ivana Matovic hit two free-throws and Nevriye Yilmaz scored five straight points for a 55-49 Fener lead.

Angel McCoughtry's jumper on a fast-break stretched the advantage to 59-49 and gave the American 22 points.
