In one of their most important games of the season, MiZo-Pécsi overcame the loss of centers Chantelle Anderson and Albena Branzova, to defeat Spanish side Ros Casares.

Allison Tranquilli got Pecs off the mark after just 8 seconds with a three-pointer after eight seconds, after which the home team never trailed.

Dalma Iványi played another sensational game scoring 20 points - making 5 of 6 three point attempts -, pulled down 6 rebounds, handed out as many assists and picked up 2 steals.

Andrea Károlyi almost matched the team captain's output by scoring 19 points.

Unexpected help came from Annamária Keller (7 points, 7 rebounds, 3 steals), Svetlana Boiko (10 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists). Pécs hit 10 three-pointers and shot by 52% from the field altogether.
