Anete Jekabsone-Zogota was this week voted as the FIBA Europe Women's Player of the Year and on Friday night, she celebrated with a game-winning performance for Dynamo Moscow in the EuroLeague Women play-offs.
Jekabsone-Zogota, held to just five points in the first three quarters by Lotos PKO BP, poured in 13 in the fourth quarter and then nine in overtime as Dynamo came back from a 10-point deficit to win 79-74 in Gdynia, Poland.
Dynamo Moscow edged Lotos PKO BP 86-75 in Moscow on Tuesday in the opening game of their eighth-finals play-offs tie in the EuroLeague Women.
In a real nail-biter, the score was knotted at 71-71 three minutes from the end when Russian guard Olga Firsova buried a three-pointer to give Dynamo the lead for good.
Kosit 2013 gave basketball in Europe a major thrill this season when they had a EuroLeague Women record turnout off more than 7,000 fans watch a game in the Ice Arena.
Sadly for fans of the Kosice club, that will be the main highlight because the Slovakian club crashed out of the competition on Wednesday, falling 78-60 at Lotos PKO BP.
The EuroLeague Women has had plenty of thrills and spills this season, and nowhere has that been truer than in Group C.
Other than Spartak Moscow Region and Gambrinus Brno finishing one and two, respectively, the race to spots three and four is still wide open after this week's results.
