Elisabeth Egnell led Norrköping with a 13-point, 12-rebound double-double

A buzzer-beater by Kali Bennett kept Norrköping Dolphins in a good position in Group B as they inflicted heartache on Dunav 8806 Ruse by snatching a 57-56 road win.

The decisive action of Bennett in the last second completed a stunning comeback for the Swedish team who were down by double-digits with less than five minutes on the game clock.

With a glorious opportunity to take their first win, the Bulgarian hosts imploded and hit an offensive drought down the stretch and the Dolphins took full advantage.

Elisabeth Egnell had 13 points and 12 rebounds for the visitors, but was underpinned by an efficient 11-point cameo from Tanya Massamba.

Jaklin Zlatanova finished with a creditable 16 points and 12 rebounds for Dunav.

A 19-point haul from former FIBA Europe Young Women's Player of the Year, Gintare Petronyte carried Homend Antakya to a comfortable 83-64 victory against Tsmoki Minsk, but the Turkish side can't progress after losing twice to domestic rivals Adana Botas.

The home side dominated the middle two quarters as Minsk fell to a fifth defeat in a row, despite a smart 13 points from Biljana Stjepanovic.

Romanian side ACS Sepsi finally got off the mark in Group C with a splendid 53-47 success on their home court against Horizont Minsk.

Sepsi didn't shoot the ball well, but did the business in crunch time, helped by 19 points and 7 boards from Kalis Lloyd.

Aleksandra Khomenchuk continued her eye-catching form for Horizont by completing a spectacular double-double of 19 points and 23 rebounds, but lacked support and the Minsk club are now locked in an exciting three-way tie.
