Lietuvos Telekomas reached the EuroLeague Women Final Four for the second consecutive year on Wednesday by scraping past MiZo Pecs in Hungary.
The visitors from Lithuania prevailed 63-59 for a 2-1 win in the quarter-final tie.
Lietuvos Telekomas levelled their tie with MiZo Pecs as Katie Douglas got just rewards for her efforts.
The American guard had a game-high 24 points in Tuesday's 79-66 loss in the opening game, but on Friday her 21 points helped Lietuvos stay ahead of MiZo in a tight encounter.
Anna Vajda went from relative obscurity to EuroLeague Women star on Tuesday with a timely 16-point effort as MiZo Pecs turned back Lietuvos Telekomas in the opening game of their quarter-final showdown.
Vajda, a Budapest-born forward/center, turned in her best performance in the competition as MiZo Pecs, the only side to beat defending champions BC Volgaburmash this season, won 79-66 over the visitors from Lithuania.
Dalma Ivanyi was the heroine as MiZo-Pecs clinched a 71-47 victory over Lotos Gdynia to progress to the last eight of EuroLeague Women.
In the third and deciding game of the series, Ivanyi’s heroics ensured her side were never seriously threatened by the visitors.
