Bourges Basket 69 vs. Tarbes GB 67

Bourges scraped a win against national rivals Tarbes in game one of their three-game EuroLeague Women series.

Bourges, historically one of Europe's top clubs with 3 EuroLeague titles to their name, found it tough going against Tarbes. Despite an opening 10-0 run by the home team, Bourges were unable to build the kind of lead which could allow them to relax.

Lavezzini Parma 86 vs. Tarbes GB 78

After a miserable start to the EuroLeague Women campaign, Italian side Lavezzini Parma finished the regular season in style, defeating French visitors Tarbes, 86-78.

Parma lost 6 of their first 7 games in the competition and in December looked like an unlikely bet to make the play-offs. But the 2004 Italian finalists rallied in 2005, winning 4 of their 5 games, including Thursday night's victory which guarantees them a place in the eighth-final play-offs.
