Lietuvos Telekomas finished their first ever EuroLeague Women Final Four in third position, after defeating MiZo Pecs on Sunday in Samara.
Lietuvos were not at their best in Friday’s semi-final against Samara, and after a disappointing first quarter against Pecs, the signs for the Lithuanian side looked ominous.
Samara’s season of destiny continued on Friday night at the EuroLeague Women Final Four with a victory over Lietuvos Telekomas.
Samara are bidding to become the first team since Comense in 1995 to go through a European season undefeated. If they can beat Gambrinus Brno in Sunday’s final, they will have recorded an 18-0 record since opening their EuroLeague Women campaign against Parma in November.
Lietuvos telekomas Vilnius picked up their first honours of the 2004-2005 season at the weekend, becoming Baltic Women's Basketball League (BWBL) champions for the sixth consecutive time.
Lietuvos telekomas were not seriously tested in the final four, overwhelming fellow Lithuanian sides Arvi Marijampole, 106-82, in the semi-finals, and Laisve, Kaunas, 95-64, in the final.
Lithuanian champions Lietuvos Telekomas Vilnius stand on the brink of an unprecedented season of success. Having already qualified for the EuroLeague Women Final Four for the first time in history, Lietuvos have also advanced to the final stages of their domestic league and the Baltic League.
