Lotos Triumph To Level Tie

Lotos Gdynia hit back to level their EuroLeague Women eighth-final tie with MiZo-Pecs by beating the Hungarian giants in Poland on Friday night.

Thrashed in the first leg, Lotos got strong efforts from Agnieszka Bibrzycka and Ewelina Kobryn in a 79-66 triumph.

MiZo-Pecs Draw First Blood Against Gdynia

MiZo-Pecs confirmed their status as serious challengers for EuroLeague Women honours with an 85-55 thrashing of Lotos Gdynia in the first leg of their eighth-final play-off.

The Hungarians, who are the only side to have defeated defending champions BC Volgaburmash this term, had no problems sweeping aside a Lotos outfit who scraped through to the play-offs as one of the lowest-ranked teams.
