Liga Feminina leaders Ros Casares Valencia and UB Barcelona face each other this weekend in a top of the table clash as both teams look for catharsis after being knocked out of the EuroLeague Women.
Ros Casares Valencia were unable to answer a 20-8 run in the last minutes of the 4th quarter and went down to USVO 68-62, at the same time bowing out from their EuroLeague Women campaign for 2004.
With only one round of games left of the regular season in the EuroLeague Women there is still no certainty as to the definitive 4 clubs from each group which will go through to the next round. Both groups see 2-3 teams fighting for a Play-Off spot and even the final placings at the top of each table are not set in stone. It has all come down to the last game day and there is still room for surprises…
The one thing that Ros Casares Valencia could not afford in their final home game of the season was a loss. Matched up with Lithuanian side Lietuvos Telekomas Vilnius, that is exactly what they got, losing 60:61. The pill was all the more bitter to swallow due to the fact that Vilnius scored at the buzzer, seriously denting Valencia’s play-off hopes.
For Vilnius, on the other hand, the win was one of the sweetest of the season. Having lost 5 of their 13 games this season by 4 points or less, they were certainly due a victory.
