In their fourth EuroLeague Women final four in 4 years, Valenciennes were not to be denied a second title. The French side put on a performance for the ages, blowing by Polish team Gdynia with a clinical display of basketball.
At the 2004 EuroLeague Women Final Four, Ann Wauters displayed once again that she is the premier center in European basketball. The 23-year old Belgian was selected as Final Four MVP for the third time in her career and was also voted to the tournament All-Star Five.
Valenciennes and Gdynia will match up tomorrow to decide who wins the 2004 EuroLeague Women title and the parallels to 2 years ago are difficult to ignore.
The dream of winning their first Euroleague Women came to an abrupt end for home team MiZo Pecs today in their home gym. The Hungarian champions were soundly beaten by French side Valenciennes, who qualify for their 4th consecutive final and have the chance to overcome the disappointment of last year’s 80:82 loss to Ekaterinburg.
