Fenerbahce remained the EuroLeague Women's lone unbeaten side with a 78-62 victory at UNIQA Euroleasing Sopron on Wednesday night.

George Dikeoulakos' team rolled to a ninth straight win after impressive performances from Ivana Matovic and Angel McCoughtry.

The former had 14 of her game-high 22 points in the first half, while McCoughtry led all scorers at the break with 16 and finished the contest with 18.

Matovic and McCoughtry each grabbed nine rebounds.

Sopron put up a good fight in the Group B game for the first 23 minutes but Fener's class put the result beyond doubt.

Leading 48-40, Matovic powered her way up for a lay-up and teammate Zane Tamane followed with two free-throws.

Nevriye Yilmaz then added a basket before Matovic stretched the advantage to 16 with a jumper.

Birsal Vardarli capped the run with a three-pointer to put the Turkish giants in front by 19.

Fener, whose Australian star Penny Taylor did not play, ended up outscoring Sopron 21-8 and in the frame and coasted to victory.

Sopron, whose Zsófia Fegyverneky poured in 18 points, slipped to 3-7 with the defeat.
