In FIBA EuroLeague Women first-placed Gambrinus JME traveled to Sopron to battle MKB Euroleasing. The crowd of 2500 was expecting a spectacular game as the visitors were keen to avenge the game they lost to MKB back in November.

Down by ten (49-59) at the start of the fourth period, MKB attempted to rally but were unable to claw their way back. Gambrinus, led by MVP Taj McWilliams (23 pts, 15 rebs), went on to capture the victory 65-81.
