Unbeaten Ros Casares Upset Teo Vilnius

17 January 2008

Ros Casares won 84-72 at Teo Vilnius on Thursday to clinch their ninth consecutive win in EuroLeague Women Group D.

Veteran forward Elena Tornikidou scored seven of her 18 points in the last two minutes to seal the win for Casares to keep them as one of only two teams still undefeated in the competition with CSKA Moscow also 9-0.

She finished eight of 11 (72.7%) from the field.

American center DeLisha Milton led Ros in scoring with 19 points while also dishing out five assists.

Ros threatened to blow the Lithuanians out of their own gym when building a 45-31 lead by half-time.

The Vilnius club, who recently appointed Rutenis Paulauskas as their head coach, battled and got right back into the game in the first four minutes of the second half.

They closed the gap to 49-46 on a basket by Belarus international Yelena Leuchanka.

That impressive start to the third quarter by the home side woke up Ros Casares who went on a 15-4 run.

That surge by Manolo Real's team put them in command for good.

Teo (3-6) did manage to close the game 79-70 but got no closer.

Lithuanian power forward Jurgita Streimikyte had a game high 27 points and pulled down seven rebounds in defeat.

The Spanish giants were superior shooting the ball inside the arc, they were 28 of 51 (54.9%) while their opponents were 25 of 55 (45.4%).
