GAME REPORT


USK Prague Squeeze Past Bourges

9. Kia Vaughn (ZVVZ USK Prague)
 Kia Vaughn produced one of her biggest performances of the season to take ZVVZ USK Prague to victory
Turning Point: The 12-5 run in the final quarter which got Prague back on level terms was decisive. When Bourges still had the chance to potentially force overtime, Kia Vaughn grabbed a precious offensive rebound.

Stats Don't Lie: ZVVZ USK Prague won't win many games with a meagre 32.3% from the floor, but 15 offensive rebounds proved to be the real gold dust in a tight encounter. It was also the case of the winning team, having arrived in Ekaterinburg with the worst rebounding record of all eight teams, winning this particular duel on the glass 40-31.
Game Hero: Vaughn chose the perfect time to have her best performance of the season with a fine double-double of 18 points and 15 rebounds.

ZVVZ USK Prague racked up an historic first EuroLeague Women Final Eight success after coming back from behind to pip Tango Bourges 56-51 and hand a perfect birthday gift to head-coach Natalia Hejkova.

Celebrating her landmark 60th birthday, the play-caller described the victory as the perfect gift and was thrilled after the final buzzer, praising her players for their defence, smart decision-making and work on the boards.

Hejkova handed much of the credit to Kia Vaughn who sat alongside her post-game aand was just as delighted with how things panned out.

"I am excited about being at the Final Eight and I wanted to show that I was here," commented Vaughn.

She then continued by adding, "Bourges are so tough because they are huge, aggressive and a strong team.

"This [win] gives us big confidence for the rest of the tournament to know that if we go down in a game, we have the confidence to come back."

Having gained the upper hand at 17-11 early in the second quarter, Prague lost their impetus and by the time the final quarter had arrived, a basket by the impressive Endene Miyem had put Bourges 45-38 ahead.

However, Prague shifted up a gear defensively and began a rescue mission which ultimately ended in a potentially priceless win, as a number of different players all made big shots during the closing minutes.

Miyem had 18 points for Bourges and Johannah Leedham had a creditable nine points, seven rebounds and four assists on her return from injury.
