Spartak Moscow Region collected the second major European silverware of their history on their homecourt, defeating Ros Casares Valencia in the EuroLeague Women Final Four.
Playing in front of a packed house of 4,000 home supporters, the 2006 EuroCup Women champions did not disappoint on their way to a 76-62 win.
Talk about a clutch performance.
Tina Thompson’s brilliant Final Four display not only allowed her to become a European champion for the first time.
Despite their 76-62 defeat at the hands of Spartak Moscow Region in the EuroLeague Women final, Ros Casares Valencia were able to find some solace in defeat.
Elisa Aguilar and DeLisha Milton-Jones both spoke to fibaeurope.com after the medal ceremony to talk about the final and the future of the team in this video interview.
Ros Casares are one victory away from their first ever EuroLeague Women title.
The Spanish outfit, behind the frontline of Erika De Souza and DeLisha Milton-Jones and a poor offensive attack by Bourges in the fourth quarter allowed the Spanish team to win the second semi-final 73-59 in Vidnoje, Russia.
