It was a memorable weekend for fans of women's basketball with Spartak Moscow Region taking home their fourth consecutive EuroLeague Women title, but records were being set outside the lines as well.
7,800 spectators packed into Pabellon Municipal Fuente de San Luis for the final, more than have ever seen a EuroLeague Women Final Four game.
Delisha Milton-Jones had asked for more recognition ahead of EuroLeague Women Final Four last weekend and with two typically influential contributions, she did everything in her power to make everyone sit up and take notice. In the end, Ros Casares just came up short in the Final and she was unable to thrust some silverware into the air to truly make her point.
Spartak Moscow Region had to suffer but they won a fourth consecutive EuroLeague Women crown on Sunday by beating Final Four hosts Ros Casares in front of a EuroLeague Women Final Four record 7,800 spectators.
Diana Taurasi followed up her 37-point explosion against UMMC Ekaterinburg on Friday with a game-high 29 against Ros as Spartak won 87-80.
Ros Casares have the crowd, and the talent.
It remains to be seen is if they have the mental fortitude to dethrone three-time defending champions Spartak Moscow Region in Sunday's EuroLeague Women Final.
