Wisla Can-Pack pulled away in the final five minutes to secure a Quarter-Final berth in the EuroLeague Women with a 69-57 victory over MiZo Pecs 2010.
In what had been a tight contest, Wisla found themselves trailing until Janell Burse's free-throw tied it at 55-55 with 4:54 to go, but Katerina Zohnova's three-pointer then fuelled a 15-2 Wisla run to finish the game.
It was a big week last week for both MiZo Pecs and their point guard Dalma Ivanyi.
After losing game one of their Eighth-Finals Play-Off series with Wisla Can-Pack 80-53 the Hungarians returned home and evened the series with a 68-64 victory.
An inspirational triple-double performance by veteran star Dalma Ivanyi kept the hopes of Mizo Pecs 2010 alive as they overcome Wisla Can-Pack in an action packed game.
The Hungarian star produced arguably the EuroLeague Women performance of the season as she rattled off 24 points, pulled down 11 rebounds and dished up 10 assists much to the delight of the home crowd.
Wisla Can-Pack Krakow shut down MiZo Pecs in the second half and claimed an 80-53 triumph in the opening game of the EuroLeague Women Eighth-Finals Play-off.
Jose Hernandez's team, surprise winners of Group B with nine victories and just one defeat, are now just a win away from a place in the Quarter-Finals.
