No Contest As Avenida Rout Prague


EuroLeague Women

The second meeting was nothing like the first as Halcon Avenida blew away ZVVZ USK Prague in the EuroLeague Women on Wednesday night.

A far cry from the one-point win for Avenida in the Czech Republic in opening week, the Spanish team rolled to a 93-65 victory in Salamanca.

Alba Torrens led the scoring parade with 22 points while Sancho Lyttle and Erika de Souza poured in 21 apiece.

Avenida, beaten for the first time in any competition this season last week at Sparta&K Moscow Region, are 5-1 and in first place in Group C with Prague now fourth at 3-3.

The run that Prague never recovered from came in the second quarter and Erika was at the center of the action for Avenida.

She scored six straight points for her team and then Belinda Snell buried a three-ball for a 40-27 advantage.

De Souza followed with another basket to take her points haul, and the lead in the game, to 15.

The Brazil center then caught a pass from Silvia Dominguez at the start of the second half and scored for a 17-point lead.

Avenida were in front by double digits the rest of the way.

Prague are still shorthanded with shooting guard Evina Maltsi missing the game.

The visitors had nine players see action.
