Determined TEO Topple Faenza


TEO Vilnius rolled to a 65-40 triumph at Germano Zama Faenza to give new coach Rutenis Paulauskas victory on his debut.

Paulauskas inherited a talented team but one that had suffered several close defeats in the early part of the EuroLeague Women campaign.

They had no problems in Italy against Faenza, leading from start to finish.

The decisive surge came midway through the second quarter with TEO leading 26-20.

Kristin Haynie made a lay-up and Yelena Leuchanka hit a jump shot and then added a pair of free throws.

Nykesha Sales then followed with a jumper inside the arc, and one beyond it before Leuchanka followed with another basket.

The 13-0 run killed Faenza's chances.

Sales finished with a game-high 26 points as TEO improved to 3-5 and Faenza dropped to 2-6.
