CCC Polkowice Boost Chances In Group C


7. Belinda Snell (CCC Polkowice)
Belinda Snell was Polkowice's top scorer with 20 points

With just one win in their previous five games, the pressure was on CCC Polkowice to utilise home advantage in their crunch EuroLeague Women Group C clash with Perfumerias Avenida and they responded with a 74-63 success.

The result provides a major boost to the play-off prospects of the Polish club, whilst in stark contrast, it looks to be a real hammer-blow for Avenida.

The Spanish visitors will be ruing a disastrous third quarter when all they could muster was a horrific four points and whilst they rallied late in the game, it was too little, too late.

CCC Polkowice were always on top for long periods, opening up a 17-8 point lead during the early exchanges after a three-ball by Belinda Snell, and then moving out to a 24-12 advantage when she found another downtown score just minutes later.

Playing catch-up, Avenida did compete much better in the second quarter and so much so, they even briefly took a one-point lead after a 15-5 run culminated in a triple for Laura Antoja.

But, they left their momentum and most of their game in the locker room at half-time, and the dreadful ten minutes which followed were to be their downfall.

The only real bright spot for Avenida was a welcome and impressive return for Croatian center Marija Rezan after several months out of action with a knee injury, although Marta Fernandez did also contribute 21 points.

Nnemkadi Ogwumike had 17 points for CCC Polkowice from 8-of-10 floor shooting, whilst Snell top scored with 20 points.
