Ros Casares Blow Past Lotos

23.11.2006

Ros Casares improved their record in EuroLeague Women Group C to 3-1 with a comprehensive 83-61 away victory against rock-bottom Lotos Gdynia.

The Spanish side edged a tight opening period, with their stand-out player Elisa Aguilar stamping her authority on the game with two three pointers to guide them into an 18-17 lead.

The visitors were dominant in the second period, extending their lead to 49-33 with forward Elena Tornikidou helping herself to eight points.

Lotos failed to stem the tide in the third quarter and found the visitors' defense hard to break down, with post players Malgorzata Dydek and DeLisha Milton claiming the majority of defensive rebounds for Casares.

Forward Tamika Whitmore was the only consistent performer for the home side, but they were well out of sight, trailing 62-44 going into the final stanza.

Casares once again outscored their hosts in the final 10 minutes and fittingly their leading points scorer Aguilar netted a three-pointer with the last play of the game.

Aguilar had 16 points, while Milton tallied 15.

Whitmore was the game's top scorer with 17 points.

Dydek was impressive in returning to her native Poland as she claimed 11 rebounds to go along with two blocks.
