Late Burst Lifts Nadezhda

20. Katie Douglas (Nadezhda)
Katie Douglas had 19 points and 5 assists as Nadezhda finished the Regular Season with a win

Nadezhda pulled away down the stretch to wrap up their EuroLeague Women Round 1 campaign with a 71-58 win over CCC Polkowice.

The visitors had made a lightning fast start, leading 23-5 at the end of the first quarter following a pair of Oxana Zakalyuzhnaya free throws, but saw the hosts keep chipping away to make it a single possession game, 52-49, on Iva Perovanovic's jump-shot with 8:47 left in the game.

Nadezhda heeded the warning, and Zakalyuzhnaya led them clear once more with back-to-back baskets giving them breathing space before Katie Douglas lay-up made it 58-49 with 6:17 to go.

Elena Danilochkina's lay-up opened up a 14-point gap, 68-54, with 2:16 left to end the hosts' hopes of a late fightback.

Douglas finished with 19 points for Nadezhda, while Zakalyuzhnaya had 16 and Anastasiya Verameyenka came up with 10 points and 15 rebounds.

Evanthia Maltsi and Megan Frazee came up with 13 points each for Polkowice.

Nadezhda finish third in Group B, while Polkowice settle for fifth.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes CCC POLKOWICE vs. NADEZHDA

Nadezhda Orenburg Head Coach Aleksandr Kovalev
"I would like to thanks CCC for today`s Game. There was really tough games for us. It was hard to win here. We fought hard and finally won so we are happy. I wish CCC success in the further stages of the Euroleague. Maybe we will play again in the future."

CCC Polkowice Head Coach Arkadiusz Rusin
"We had big problems in the first half, particularly in the first quarter. We could not resist our rivals in rebounding and that was the main reason of our defeat. In the second half we tried to fight, we reduced the advantage to 3 points but finally, in last quarter Nedezhda played very smart and won."

Nadezhda Orenburg player Oxana Zakalyuzhnaya

"For us it was a tough game. We started really good but later CCC returned to the game. I`m really happy and proud of my team. Now we will prepare for the next round.”

CCC Polkowice player Valerija Musina
"We started this game really badly. We made only five points in the first quarter. Later we played better but today Nadezhda was too strong for us. We must forget about this game and practice more to be better in the next games.”
