Fenerbahce Ease Into Last Eight

04 February 2011
Fenerbahce swept their way into the last eight of the EuroLeague Women with a 73-51 road triumph over Turkish rivals Galatasaray.

Fener shot a lights-out eight-of-11 (72.7%) from three-point range and out-rebounded their hosts 40-23 in a comprehensive victory.

The winners made their intentions clear from the off, starting the game with a 14-2 run and never allowing their lead to dip into single figures again.

The margin reached 20, 40-20, on Ivana Matovic's jump-shot before half-time and made it to as much as 28, 61-33, on Hana Horakova's three-pointer late in the third quarter.

Fener moved into a lower gear in the fourth quarter, allowing Gala to close the gap at least a little, but the result was never in doubt.

Esmeral Tuncluer led the way with 16 points and seven rebounds, nine of her points coming on perfect three-of-three shooting from long-range.

Matovic also had 16 points, while Anete Jekabsone added 14.

Sylvia Fowles was the only Gala player to reach double figures with 14 points, as they managed only 2-of-18 (11.1%) shooting from three-point range.
