Prague Extend Winning Streak In Style

24.11.2010

The travel sickness of Galatasaray Medical Park continued in Group C of EuroLeague Women.

The Turkish club were again demolished on the road after slumping to an 84-56 defeat at USK Prague who are now on a roll after a third straight win.

Again it was the hot hand of EuroLeague Women veteran Eva Viteckova that propelled the Czech side to success with the shooter converting four of five attempts from the arc to finish with 25 points while fellow veteran Delisha Milton-Jones racked up a double-double.

While Galatasaray struggled to keep pace with their opponents after the opening exchanges, things went from bad to worse in the second half.

After six minutes of the game the visitors trailed by only two points at 14-12 but then allowed USK Prague to score 12 of the last 14 points in the quarter.

It was all downhill for Galatasaray after that and their shortcomings at both ends of the floor were brutally exposed by a rampant home side who really turned on the style.

So much so that Galatasaray only managed a paltry 7 points in the final seven minutes of the game while Prague just kept their foot on the gas right until the final buzzer.

Lindsay Whalen chipped in with 16 points and 6 rebounds for the home team while for the disappointing losing team only Sylvia Fowles could hold her head high with 23 points and 9 rebounds.
