MiZo Pécs Win After Queenan Free Throws

27.01.2009

Brooke Queenan made two free throws with just two seconds remaining to lift MiZo Pécs 2010 to a 61-60 upset of Group B winners Umana Reyer Venezia in Italy.

In the opening game of EuroLeague Women Eighth-Finals tie between the sides, Queenan was fouled by recent Umana Reyer signing Essence Carson and made the most of the opportunity.

Carson had played for TTT Riga during the Regular Season but the Latvian team failed to reach the play-offs and Umana Reyer added her to their roster.

She had a game to forget.

With 14 seconds to go, Umana Reyer were in a strong position after Mariangela Cirone made two free throws for a 60-57 lead.

Mery Andrade fouled Dalma Ivanyi, who sank both free throws to cut the deficit to one.

Ivanyi then fouled Carson, who shot 80.8% from the line for Riga but the American missed both shots before committing the foul that put Queenan on the line for the game winning free throws.

Ivanyi had 17 points and 12 rebounds for MiZo
