Two In A Row For Municipal Targoviste


44. Gabriela Marginean (Municipal Targoviste)
Gabriela Marginean was flawless from the foul line, making 15 of 15 free throws

Having had to wait since the nineties for their previous EuroLeague Women win, this time Municipal Targoviste left a mere seven days between victories after they emerged 87-82 winners of their Group B match-up at UE Sopron.

In a game which witnessed both teams spend plenty of time at the free-throw line, the Romanian visitors made the most of it with 26-point Gabriella Marginean making a perfect 15 of 15 to help secure a hard-fought and precious road win.

However it had looked like Serbian forward Jelena Milovanovic may emerge as the game winner for the home team after she revelled in a remarkable purple patch ahead of half-time.

With the contest potentially slipping away from UE Sopron, she could barely miss from the arc as she sunk a wonderful five of six triple attempts to ensure it was only a one-shot game at 51-48 by the midway point of the game.

Things got even better during the third quarter for the 30-point Milovanovic when her fellow Serbian Sara Krnjic put Sopron 67-60 in front, but things began to unravel in rapid quick-time either side of the third and fourth quarter break.

Targoviste found another gear with a 22-7 burst, and it proved decisive since it knocked the stuffing out of their opponent who couldn't recover.

In addition to the fine work of Marginean, forward Jillian Robbins completed a nicely efficient double-double of 10 points and 10 rebounds.
