GAME REPORT


Monkey Is Off The Back As Szeviép Win First Game

It took five games but Szeviép Szeged finally won a game in the EuroLeague Women.

Vaida Sipaviciute poured in 16 points and pulled down 12 rebounds as the Hungarian club prevailed in front of their own fans, 82-66.

Szeviép made certain of this victory in the first half, when they scored the first 14 points of the game.

Sipaviciute had six points and Emöke Füresz five in that opening spurt for the hosts.

The lead ballooned to 24-7 with 11 seconds to go in the first quarter after Sipaviciute split a pair of free-throws.

Victory was all but assured less than a minute into the second quarter after Sipaviciute made a lay-up to stretch the Szeviép advantage to 31-9.

With a minute to go in the half, a jumper by Edit Laczi made it 46-18 for Szeviép.

There was no way back for the visitors from France.

Laczi finished with 14 points and Füresz 12 while Frida Eldebrink poured in 21 points for Tarbes, who dropped to 1-5.

COACH QUOTES


Szeviep vs. Tarbes Quotes

Francois Gomes, Tarbes Coach:

"Today the better team won. We tried to break the rhythm of Szeviép's game, but we gave up too many points in the first quarter. It was the last chance to qualify to the next round, and we failed. We prepare for the next season to be better."

Florence Lepron, Tarbes:

"Everybody thinks if you're a good player, everything comes easy. But this is not the true, we can be better every day. We will try."

Tamás Bencze, Szeviep Coach:

"We worked hard to improve our play step by step, and now we've managed to win against our obstacles to be a winner in EuroLeague."

Bernadett Németh, Szeviep:

"We started very well, and except some harder period we won easily. It's a good feeling."
