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.
Spartak Moscow Region stayed on course for a fourth consecutive EuroLeague Women title after another incredible performance by Diana Taurasi.
The USA superstar, and the MVP of last year's Final Four win in Salamanca, buried eight three-balls and finished with a game-high 37 points as Spartak won 87-79.
If you want the lowdown on the EuroLeague Women teams in Spain for Final Four then look no further as we get the inside track on those who will be involved in Valencia. Yes, it's time to hand over ‘Paulball' to some rather special guest columnists!
