A 19-2 first-quarter surge propelled CSKA Volgaburmash to a resounding 75-63 victory at MKB Euroleasing and into the EuroLeague Final Four for the third straight year.
Winners of the competition two years ago and beaten finalists last season against Gambrinus Sika Brno, Volgaburmash swept MKB 2-0 in the quarter-final tie and are now just two wins away from lifting the title.
CSKA Volgaburmash drew first blood in their EuroLeague Women quarter-final play-off with a 75-62 triumph over MKB Euroleasing on Tuesday.
The match was finely poised until the second half, with only one point in it at the midway stage with CSKA 33-32 up.
An 8-0 run in the final minute powered MKB Euroleasing into the quarter-finals of the EuroLeague Women with an 80-70 win over UMMC Ekaterinburg.
Having fallen short with a late rally in game two of this series, MKB were far more decisive in the closing stages this time.
UMMC Ekaterinburg survived a dramatic finish to level their Eighth-Final play-off with MKB Euroleasing at 1-1 with a 71-69 victory on Friday.
Having lost Tuesday's opener 86-76, UMMC needed victory to force a deciding game on Wednesday.
