UMMC Ekaterinburg blew away TEO Vilnius in the second half on Friday and won 69-46 to reach the Quarter-Finals of the EuroLeague Women play-offs.

Asjha Jones had 15 points and 10 rebounds for UMMC, who only led by six at half-time but opened up a 49-35 advantage with 10 minutes to go.

In that pivotal stretch of the third quarter when Ekaterinburg took command, the score was 37-32 when Jones and Cappie Pondexter drilled back-to-back jumpers.

Jones then followed with a pair of free throws to make it 43-32.

Down by 15 at the start of the fourth, TEO managed to close the gap to 52-43 with 5:42 to go after a pair of Jurgita Streimikyte jump shots, but Jones and Agnieszka Bibrzycka replied with back-to-back three-pointers and Ekaterinburg stormed to a convincing triumph.
