Ros Casares got their wake-up call in a first EuroLeague Women defeat of the season at US Valenciennes on Friday.
Five days later and it was business as usual for the Spanish giants, who beat USVO 70-46 back in Valencia to clinch a 2-1 win in their eighth-finals series to stay in the title hunt.
Ros Casares suffered their first setback of the EuroLeague Women campaign on Friday at US Valenciennes in the EuroLeague Women Eighth-Finals Play-offs.
Nicole Ohlde scored 20 points to fire USVO to a 71-63 victory and force a deciding third game in the series that will be played in Valencia.
US Valenciennes played hard in their opening game of the EuroLeague Women Eighth Finals, but not hard enough against Ros Casares.
That was the point the French team's coach, Hervé Coudray, tried to make after the game.
US Valenciennes stayed within striking distance for a half but were then blown away by undefeated Ros Casares on Tuesday on the opening night of the EuroLeague Women eighth finals.
The Spanish side led 40-30 early in the second half and then put the defensive clamps on their opponents from France and pulled away for a decisive 70-44 win.
