Fenerbahce were overwhelming favorites and played like it against Tarbes on Wednesday.

The Istanbul club remained perfect in the EuroLeague Women with an 80-60 victory, keeping their French opponents winless in the competition this season.

Fener, having already clinched first place in Group B, celebrated their 10th triumph as Angel McCoughtry scored 17 points.

The hosts trailed 9-8 midway through the first quarter when Birsel Vardarli ignited them with a three-pointer.

McCoughtry then had three straight baskets before Nevin Nevlin followed with a lay-up.

That made the score 19-9 but Fener weren't done because McCoughtry made another lay-up to take her points haul to 10 and then Nevlin sank two free-throws for the 14-point lead.

Fener kept the pressure on and went to half-time on top, 44-24, and pressed home the advantage in the second half.

Nevlin finished with 11 points while Kubra Siyahdemir and Ivana Matovic had 10 each.
