Fenerbahce's Last-Minute Victory

07.12.2006

Fenerbahce SK stole a last-minute 68-64 victory against rock-bottom Lotos Gdynia in Group C of the Euroleague Women.

Gdynia came agonisingly close, but with the scores level at 64-64 with just 40 seconds to play, Tammy Sutton-Brown weighed in with a vital two points.

Then with no more than eight seconds to go Cappie Pondexter claimed a pair of free-throws to complete the hosts' misery.

Pondexter shone for Fenerbahce, who now lie joint third with a 4-2 record in the competition, scoring 26 points and contributing four assists.

Tamika Whitmore put in a superb performance for the hosts and, after pouring in 22 points and collecting 10 rebounds to earn herself a double double, can count herself unfortunate to be on the losing side again.

Gdynia claimed narrow advantages in each of the first two quarters, leading by a point after the first and extending that lead by three by the halfway stage.

But the visitors proved too strong for their opponents and an impressive showing in the remaining two quarters, which Fenerbahce won 19-13 and 19-17, sealed the win.
