Rivas Roll To Third Win In A Row


If Frisco Brno were on a high last week after upsetting Wisla Can-Pack Krakow for their first win of the EuroLeague Women campaign, Rivas Ecopolis brought them back down to earth on Wednesday.

The Spanish club cruised to a 112-70 victory - their third in a row after opening Group C with two defeats.

Asjha Jones had 20 points and 10 rebounds for Rivas, who also got 15 points and six boards from recent signing Jelena Dubljevic.

Anna Cruz was terrific with 16 points and eight rebounds and evergreen point guard Elisa Aguilar scored 14 points and dished out 11 assists.

The Spanish club won the battle of the boards, 55-30, and shot 57.1% (44 of 77) inside the arc.

Now coached by Miguel Martinez Mendez, Rivas took control early.

They scored the first six points of the game and led 25-12 with 1:48 to go in the first quarter.

Brno managed to stay within striking distance but fell away over the last 4:37 of the second quarter when Rivas outscored them 14-7 for a 55-35 lead.

Rivas thrilled the home crowd with a decisive second half and won by 42 points.

Jasmine Thomas had 18 points in defeat.

Brno are now 1-4.
