11. Katerina Elhotova (ZVVZ USK Prague)
Czech international Katerina Elhotova was one of five USK Prague players to score in double digits in the second game of the league finalsĀ 

Big favourites ZVVZ USK Prague need just one more victory to sweep Frisco Sika Brno and complete a successful Czech title defense.

Lubor Blazek's team followed up their 99-80 demolition of Brno in the opener with an 88-61 triumph in Game 2.

Michaela Zrustova finished with 18 points, Delisha Milton-Jones had 15 and Katerina Elhotova 13 for Prague.

The winners were on top, 73-37 with one quarter still to play and were outscored 24-15 the rest of the way.

The last 10 minutes did not leave Blazek, who is also the Czech Republic national team coach, satisfied.

"For us, it was a tough game and we did our best to win here," he said.

"In the last quarter, we lacked concentration and the performance changed."

Prague can wrap up the title with a win on Tuesday in front of their own fans.
