Dynamo Kursk became the first club to reach the EuroCup Women Quarter-Finals after claiming another resounding victory over Horizont.

The Russian club won the first leg last week in Belarus, 82-55, and finished off Horizont with a 78-53 triumph on Wednesday for a 160-108 win on aggregate.

Facing a 27-point deficit before tip-off, Horizont had to start well just to have a glimmer of hope but they were outscored 15-10 in the opening frame and went to half-time trailing in the second leg, 34-21.

Kursk put on an exclamation mark on the victory by outscoring Horizont 29-15 in the third quarter.

Ekaterina Lisina had 27 points and 14 rebounds for Kursk, who have this week signed former Latvia international Gunta Basko.
