Ros opened up a 17-point lead in the first half but Polkowice battled back to trail just 34-30.

Agnieszka Bibrzycka, playing in her first EuroLeague Women game with Polkowice, hit a three-pointer to close the gap to 34-29 and then Iva Perovanovic split a pair of free-throws to cut the deficit to four.

The comeback jolted Ros Casares, who finished the half strong.

Isabelle Yacoubou followed up a miss by Maya Moore and scored down low and following another Moore miss, Sancho Lyttle grabbed the offensive rebound and put the ball in on the follow-up shot for a 38-30 Ros Casares advantage.

Moore struggled to make her shots in the first half but drilled a three for the last points of the second quarter for a 41-32 lead.

Wauters, who had seven points in the first half, began the second with consecutive lay-ups before Lauren Jackson popped back-to-back three-pointers for a 51-32 advantage.

Ros cruised over the last 10 minutes for a decisive win.

Wauters also had 10 rebounds for Ros Casares, who won the battle of the boards, 50-34.

Moore finished three of 10 from long range and had 17 points and nine rebounds.
