Pécs were awesome.

They got a terrific game from a host of players, including their captain and veteran, Dalma Ivanyi.

The point guard scored a season-high 18 points, handed out six assists and also hauled in eight rebounds.

It was Kelsey Griffin who put the hosts in front to stay with a three-pointer midway through the third quarter for a 47-46 advantage.

Point guard Zsófia Fegyverneky followed with a basket and though Kosice's Candice Dupree scored to bring the deficit back to 49-48 with 2:37 to go in the third, the visitors got no closer.

Alexandria Quigley answered with a three-pointer and then after Kosice pulled to within 52-50, Ivanyi struck from the arc.

Pécs went in front by 10 in the fourth quarter before winning by three.

The Hungarian side excelled at the free-throw line, making 22 of 23 on the night.

They also shot the ball well from long range, drilling seven of 15.

Kosice were four of 10 from three-point land and sank eight of 11 free-throws.
