Phard Napoli upset TTT Riga 68-65 on Wednesday to knock the Latvian club out of the EuroLeague Women.
Riga went into the contest fourth in Group A, but with the same 3-6 record as fifth-placed ESB Lille Metropole.
ESB Lille Metropole beat Phard Napoli 82-79 in overtime to stay in the hunt for a place in the eighth-finals of the EuroLeague Women.
Fatimatou Sacko scored 22 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the French to their third victory in nine games in Group A.
Phard Napoli will not have Yasemin Horasan when they try to keep their slim hopes of progressing in the EuroLeague Women alive on Wednesday at ESB Lille Metropole.
The Turkey international has averaged 9.7 points and 4.7 rebounds for Phard this season but she will miss the game in France with an ankle injury.
Phard Napoli aren't likely to progress in the EuroLeague Women with just one win in eight games so far, but Astou Ndiaye is looking at the positives from the Italian club's campaign overall.
Ndiaye, a Senegal international, is the team's leading rebounder in Europe at 6.5 per game and the second-leading scorer with an average of 12.6.
