Brunson Lowers The Boom Against Schio


Ros Casares took over sole possession of first place in Group D of the EuroLeague Women with a 65-51 defeat of Beretta-Famila Schio in Valencia.

The Spanish club used a 10-run that bridged the first and second quarters as a launch pad for victory.

Rebekkah Brunson, who used to play against Schio frequently when she was on the books of Cras Basket Taranto the past couple of years, had five points in a row at the start of the run that gave Ros a 20-10 lead.

The advantage ballooned to 37-22 on a pair of Marta Fernandez free-throws late in the first half.

The Italian club, which fell to Ros in the first meeting on November 10 by 11 points, managed to reduce the arrears to five points in the third quarter but got no closer.

Katie Douglas poured in 18 points for Ros, but the star of the show was Brunson who had 14 points, 14 rebounds and four steals.

Spain international Cindy Lima also sparked the Ros Casares defense by coming up with a game-high five steals.

France center Isabelle Yacoubou-Dehoui walked off the court with 15 points for Schio.

Ros improved to 6-2 and while Schio fell to 5-3 - the same record as Bourges.

Nadezhda are also 4-4 and in hot pursuit with just two games remaining for each of the teams.
