GAME REPORT


Joyous Kibirkstis Stop A Six Game Rot

11. Lina Pikciute (Vilnius Kibirkstis)
Lina Pikciute was the crown in Vilnius Kibirkstis' victory with 17 points and 11 rebounds

Kibirkstis-VICI Vilnius picked up their first EuroLeague Women victory since way back in November after taking a memorable 86-68 win against fellow Group C strugglers Novi Zagreb.

The Lithuanian side exploded with a mesmerising 28-15 final quarter to blow a hole in the play-off hopes of the Croatian visitors who can no longer qualify.

It was a big turnaround for Kibirkstis who looked to be on course for a seventh consecutive defeat when they fell 40-29 behind after a score by Zagreb guard Elina Babkina shortly before the break.

But, whatever head-coach Jurgita Streimikyte-Virbickiene said in the locker-room at half-time certainly worked as Kibirkstis stunned their opponents by proceeding to rack up a mammoth 55 second-half points.

Within five minutes of the players getting back to the floor, Ieva Krastina had put Kibirsktis 43-42 ahead and when Greta Sniokaite hit a triple with the last shot of the period, the home team were on a roll at 58-53.

Sensing a third success of the campaign, they continued their stellar work into the last quarter and left Zagreb trailing in their wake, thanks mainly to some deadly outside shooting.

Sniokaite finished with a trio of three-pointers en-route to 13 points and Vita Kuktiene was perfect from downtown to claim 15 points.

However, the jewel in the Kibirkstis crown was Lina Pikciute, who racked up a double-double of 17 points and 11 rebounds.

Novi Zagreb had five players in double-digits, led by Jelena Ivezic with 14 points, but suffered from their inability to make outside shots.

 

COACH AND PLAYER QUOTES


Quotes: Kibirkstis-Vici Vilnius vs. WBC Novi Zagreb

Kibirkstis-VICI Vilnius Player Marina Solopova
"We were nervous at first as we lost the six last games. We had a talk at half time, started playing fast and defeated opponents in their own style. We learned from our mistakes. We didn‘t make our shots in the first half but later we felt the rhythm."

Kibirkstis-VICI Jurgita Streimikyte-Virbickiene
"I hoped for a good result. I probably would have made a powerful dunk if I could have played myself - I personally had so much energy. It‘s a shame that in the first half my players had too much desire and it went the wrong way. The players got a harsh talk during the break and the second part of the game was completely different. We were more aggressive and played better defence - that is what got us the win. We must send a message to everyone that it is too soon to write us off."

WBC Novi Zagreb Head Coach Vladimir Ivanković
"The main reason of our defeat today was lack of discipline. We played good in the first half but we lost control in the second. We also knew that "Kibirkstis-VICI" is a good shooting team but we let them make open shots. We had a great last game against "Polkowice" and I thought that we will play with the wings today, but we only played like that in the first half."
