Pecs began their campaign to make the EuroLeague Final Four for the second consecutive year in style, with an easy win against Kozachka Zalk in the first of their three game play-off series.

Pecs led 22-11 after 10 minutes and by halftime the game was effectively over, as the Hungarian side led 43-25.
Pecs coach Laszlo Ratgeber turned to his bench in the last quarter, but it had no impact on the score and Pecs strolled to a comfortable victory.
In a balanced offensive effort, Koraljka Hlede led Pecs wîth 14 points. Ivanyi (11 points and 11 assists) and Timea Ivkovicné Béres (12 points and 12 rebounds) both recorded double-doubles.
